Re: [patch] gui should reflect the actual state of vpn

Wait, so what is the user experience with this patch?  I had thought we
were going to move to a more reactive applet and this sounds like a less
reactive applet.

The reactive applet problem is where you click on a wireless network and
it doesn't do anything right away.  Presumably it's sent a dbus message
to NetworkManager, however we really want the applet to instantly do
something different to show that it's going to change.
