We don't currently support two-phase authentication (inner/outer auth),
in the current or unstable version, but we do have it on the plan.

It would not be hard to add; wpa_supplicant supports it.  We would need
to do two things

	1. Expand the Enterprise UI to support two-phase auth.  This
	   is not hard to implement but hard to get right.  This UI
	   is currently a mess and needs work.

	2. Expand the DBUS API to do two-phase auth.

Probably want to do it in 0.7 first and then consider back-porting it.
To do it cleanly we need to break the DBUS API, which isn't acceptable
in 0.6.
