wired and wireless network manager - metapackage

Wicd is a general-purpose network configuration server which aims to provide a simple but flexible interface for connecting to networks. Its features include:

 * wide variety of settings;
 * ability to connect to (and maintain profiles for) both wired and
   wireless networks;
 * support for many encryption schemes, including WEP, WPA, WPA2 and
   custom schemes;
 * wireless-tools compatibility;
 * tray icon showing network activity and signal strength;
 * lack of GNOME dependencies (although it does require GTK+), making it
   easy to use in Xfce, Fluxbox, Openbox, Enlightenment, etc.

This is a metapackage, it allows installation of all the components of Wicd, including one of the clients, which must be manually chosen.
