You can find my bitbake recipe for wpa-gui here  and a package here . There are also my changed files in wpa-roaming.tar and and a README in . I have been using this setup for months now with connections to WPA(2) PSK, WEP and unencrypted networks with dhcp and static IP.

simply use mdbus and dbus calls to set the resource policy for wifi  or if you want it cleaner, you write an app that requests the resource and releases it when no longer needed.
should be something like this:
mdbus -s org.freesmarthone.ousaged /org/freesmartphone/Usage org.freesmartphone.Usage.SetResourcePolicy WiFi enabled
