QT4 seems to have its own session management capabilities (QSessionManager),
however I cannot make head nor toe out of it yet... If it could be made to
work, it may be possible to write some kind of GUI preference to
~/.wpa_cli.conf or similar. It would at least avoid having to rely on other
desktop manager specific methods for doing similar. I did attempt this a few
weeks ago, but gave up in frustration. It seemed like too much hard work at
the time :) (and no idea how to handle it in the win32 build...)

Thanks, Kel.
