wep, wpa and wpa2 wifi networks use the same icon

Bug Description

Binary package hint: network-manager

network-manager should display a different visual clue for wep, wpa and wpa2 networks. In the current left-click, pull-down menu it only distinguishes between open and encrypted wifi networks. I believe that in karmic it was still possible to understand the type of network encryption just by looking at the available networks. This should be reasonably simple to fix even in Ubuntu itself.

Setting to Wishlist; while I agree there could be something, it's unclear how that would be made to agree with the theme, if it was to be an icon (and text seems rather superfluous)
