I had a look at the website, on the first look, it seems quite similar
to wpa_gui, but on the other hand, it seems to have additional
functionality like starting wpasupplicant on session login.

Perhaps you are interested in joining the pkg-wpa team on alioth [1]?
We could share an svn repository and discuss best integration of kwlan
into the wpasupplicant package in debian on the wpa-pkg-devel
mailinglist [2].
