is there a gnome 3 WICD applet available?

view story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – i'm currently running gnome 3 with wicd as my internet interface... and it works great, i installed the wicd-gtk package so i had an easy to access icon in the notification bar (bottom right corner).  but i'm a little jealous of the more prominent network manager applet that shows up in the top right corner.  i tried switching back to network manager, but it just sucks.  is there any available modification to put the wicd notifier in the applet spot in gnome shell?  i think i remember hearing that gnome shell is written almost entirely in javascript or something e (HowTos)
