[Solved] Awesome Window Manager, system tray

I'm using the latest stable #!Crunchbang 64 bit backports edition, and I installed the Awesome Window Manager (my favorite!) which I have used in the past. It works just fine, except the notification area icons which appear in Openbox don't appear in Awesome. Specifically, I would like the NetworkManager icon to work, as well as the volume slider and battery monitor icons. I'm not too concerned about the clipboard manager, but that'd be nice too.

I tried searching the #! forum, to no avail. Thanks in advance for helping me!

EDIT: Solved! See below...

If you just need the systray and not a complete panel...maybe trayer?  ('Tis in the repos.)
