AFAIK, knetworkmanager only needs a compatible system tray and kwallet (to
store the keys). I didn't try with Xfce or another WM, though. WMaker is
probably a good test candidate.
Normally, they do not create "icons".
But there is always a lack of control applications, that's true. Another
example are passkey agents for current bluez (there is only one for Gnome).
