    I am trying this now and it seems to be a bit buggy and not really
ready for prime time.

     I used it to connect to local wifi - worked fine. Left my laptop
and returned a couple hours later. I am still connected - and the hover
pop up shows the connection and correct SSID. However clicking the
applet no longer shows an active connection section. No way to disconnect.

    There is a previous connection (also no 'unknown connections'
section) but it had nothing useful (just a connection out of my list not
used for years).

    After a few minutes the SSID I was connected to showed up in the
'previous connections' section - with a button to 'connect'. Clicking
that, the connection was killed and re-establihsed and the 'active
connections' section re-appeaed with the connected SSID now visible. The
unkown connection  section also re-appeared.

   For those not yet using this you may want to wait a while until it
matures more.
