Allows you to configure different network profiles
using all encryptions wpa_supplicant provides
(wep, wpa, wpa2 etc) for wireless networks. 
Since version 0.4.5 kwlan can connect to
unencrypted networks if wpa_supplicant is not

Kwlan can also store profiles for wired networks.

Dialup networks can be edited and connected to as

Systray icons show connection statistics per
interface (can be disabled).

 Version 0.5.8
- Added broadcom and bsd drivers to wpa_supplicant
- Added options to configure phase1 and phase2
- Added option to prevent interfaces from being
configured by Kwlan
- Added option to use custom wpa_supplicant config

Version 0.5.7
- Use only /sys/class for interface detection and
statistics instead of ifconfig
- start pppd in user mode instead of root mode
(requires user to be in dialup group,
  respects linux group access rights)
- Added warning if user is not in dialup group
- Added documentation (at least started it...)
