The good:
- Left click and right click both open the menu. Much better!
- Wired works
- Unsecure wireless works
- can edit connections

The bad:
- still KDE3
- took two tries for unsecure wireless to connect
- secure wireless (WPA2 Enterprise, PEAP) doesn't seem to work
  - after the first 2 tries, now NetworkManager crashes
(knetworkmanager says "NetworkManager is not running") while trying to
connect to secure wireless
- doesn't autodetect EAP method (I think knetworkmanager used to do
this, or maybe PEAP was just the default which worked out nicely for
me)
- have to set up every connection, can't just pick something from the
menu right away
