You know what, I probably meant to say kwifimanager there, which 
definitely has no WPA support in it. Even if it did, I'd still greatly 
prefer a wireless mechanism that wasn't dependent on KDE, but that came 
up at boot time regardless of whether I was in KDE or not. What I found 
with using kwifimanager on a WEP network is that until I had actually 
logged into KDE, it didn't bring the wireless interface up. I'm sure 
I'm not the only one who finds that to be a nonstarter.

A wifi manager should definitely have a GUI frontend, but it should not 
be dependent on that frontend to work.
