I need access to GNOME's network applet (nm-applet) to do wireless with
WPA - it's just been a mess for me otherwise.  There's no command-line
analogue, and xmonad won't display just the applet in its own window, so
I've been using 'trayer' to start it up and do my configuration.  More
than a bit of a hack, but works well enough.
