Reason for closing:  Won't implement

Hi David, I spoke with the iwd dev team about the autotests directory already. They stated that it's a bad idea to do this, because these files are part of tests and therefore there is no guarantee for security etc.

Marcel Holtmann, the iwd lead dev, actually suggested that we should work on examples and make a PR for them in /doc/examples/ if we really want examples.
But he has stated as well, that he would prefer examples in the man page (I don't like this approach, it would blow up the man page with more than 10 different EAP methods etc).

Also he has mentioned the existence of the iwd wiki:
