And if I do install wicd to use in Xmonad, will that replace whatever app is currently running in Xubuntu?  Thanks.

It's an excellent question.  I've used wicd on other distros quite happily.  I just wanted to cause as little change as possible for my woman, whom I'm still teaching Linux.  But the learning curve on such a switch is virtually nil, so I think this is the way to go.  Thanks for your help!
