Could/should I use dhcpcd-gtk together with wpa_gui or are the two
mutually exclusive?

And if use either or both of them, should I leave rc.conf untouched or
should I configure it anyway?

To repeat, my standard use would be:

1) Home 1, main router
2) Home 2, second access point, different SSID
3) Public Library, unencrypted wireless
4) Occasional wired networking
