NetworkManager's D-Bus service.  We call its state() method at startup
to get the current network state, and listen for StateChanged signals

It should be pointed out that this works only when the interface is
managed by NetworkManager. Since that depends on how the user's system
is configured, "Why does Evo say I'm offline when I'm not?" is becoming
a frequently-asked question both on this list and on others (the Fedora
list for example).
