Bug#275725: ITP: knetworkled -- Network activity monitor for KDE systray

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

This is a little app which displays network activity in an icon in KDE's
system tray, which lets you know if something is taking a long time to
transmit or the connection just hung.

* Package name    : knetworkled
  Version         : 0.5.1
  Upstream Author : Brent Kelly <hornedgod@example.org>
* URL             : http://www.glitch13.com/knetworkled.php

  Description     : Network activity monitor for KDE systray

Current Features:
Docks into KDE system tray.
Has a configuration dialog from which you can select what network device to
monitor (out of the ones you have available) and how often you want to poll
that device for activity (100ms to 1000ms).
Tooltip popup when mouseovering the systemtray icon that displays what
device is being monitored and how many TX/RX packets have been

Known bugs:
It doesn't get the correct RT/TX values from /proc/net/dev because the
columns for the numbers are different than the the title columns for a
couple people people I've seen (don't know why their dev file is screwy).
Its possible that it's the same for people with kernels other than 2.4.x or
2.6.x. If yours is different and you know what columns are what, the columns
the program uses are simple defines that you can change before compiling.
There's no install rule for the makefile.
I'd like it to detach from the console or whatever its run from, this is
probably easy, but like I said, I'm a neophyte at this stuff.
I'm sure there's a few more...
