It isn't that much of a hack - the ifconfig is fairly standard for manually 
starting a network interface - if you go manual, you have to do 
ifconfig/iwconfig/iwlist all the way. 

If you had chosen to run NetworkManager instead, wpa_supplicant would be 
started by NetworkkManager automatically, ifconfig is also run by 
NetworkManager, and all you do instead is put the iwconfig ESSID info into 
networkmanager's applet GUI - that's how it is supposedly to work for most
