Other than that network security tools with a pretty GTK+ frontend would
be pretty nice.

I'm not too familiar with the gnome-network module, but when I hear it,
these are things that come to my head. The NetAdmin in me wants a

it's called now?), specificly for dealing with networks opposed to just
a single box.

Again, just my initial thoughts from reading the post. Good luck on your
project though.
