Thanks for the reply, Bernard.
I used to use wpasupplicant and that is what finally drove me to
wlassistant so I could choose among APs manually. I realize Debian
relies on configuring the network stack without reliance on a GUI and I
too use ifplugd for my wired Ethernet interface.
I see the reply below mentions a Plasma widget for Network Manager that
may be the same as the widget used by my Kubuntu 8.10 test
