If you try to run euscan on that, you'll get:

What's happenning here is that the version can be found in the url, so
even a directory scan won't find anything because it won't be able to
match files.
It would work correctly if the version was 2010.11.24 or the file was
named wireless-regdb-20101124.tar.bz2.

Unfortunatly, making that work would probably introduce a lot of false
positive in other cases.
