A huge number of people seem to like wicd.

On Debian, 'wicd' is a metapackage.  You need core package wicd-daemon
and one or more of:  wicd-gtk, wicd-curses, wicd-cli, wicd-client.

The clients are Python (+ respective rendering libs).  The daemon
requires dbus, wpasupplicant, wireless-tools, and a few obvious network
things.  Nothing surprising.
