Wifi settings are lost on each upgrade

It is getting so old having to type in my Wifi password (which is necessarily long and complex) every time a firmware upgrade happens. They remember other data across upgrades, so why not this?

I guess if they issued a rock-solid firmware version that didn't require so many updates this would be less of an issue, but...

I only re-enter my wifi information if I do a factory reset. Absolutely everything - all settings, book marks, wifi information, etc. survive upgrades.

Hmmm. With the knowledge that it is SUPPOSED to remember the wifi password, I wonder if it's just the tragic user interface. If I go to settings>Wifi Connection>Connect it scans for networks. If I select my local wifi network (one that it knows the password for) it still asks for the password again (making me think it had forgot it). In fact, it does forget it, if you do this.
