Does "Forget" forget all networks, not just the ones present?

Otherwise, the only reason I can think of is the installed base
expectations and training issues.

If I recall correctly, the main use case was inability to properly
handle access points that either changed their passphrase or switched
between encrypted and not-encrypted.  If you add these test cases and
pass them, I see no major problem with removing "Discard...".
