Installing nm-tray adds 13 packages in summary, 22 MB in size (while the whole
installed lxqt system has 4,4 GB here).
I guess that's worth it.

However, I don't consider adding a bluetooth applet as needed.
People can always install things, if network connection is working ;-)

CC'ing lxqt people via pkg-lxqt-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org.
I will add nm-tray to task-lxqt-desktop, if noone objects...
