I use 'docker'[1]. This tool has been the sole reason i switched back to using WindowMaker after having to compromise on using Gnome with all it's bells and  whistles, for a long time.

After starting docker (and docking the app), you can start off any of the gnome-panel applets and they will appear in docker.

I prefer starting off:
pidgin -n
gnome-power-manager
network-manager
If you are a regular user of WindowMaker, you might already know about the file ~/GNUstep/Library/WindowMaker/autostart, where you can start up network-manager on login.

(note, i am not on my laptop right now, so can't confirm the exact commandline, if you have trouble, please let me know and I'll send you my configs when I can)

HTH
