I sometimes use wireless, some times wired network with dhcp and
sometimes static IP addresses, and here nm-applet would work for all
but for last scenario (static IP addresses).

There is a module called systray for E17, it looks like it is really
new and Ubuntu guys packaged it but it hasn't landed in Fedora yet.
This module would let NetworkManager work in E17.
