Overriding with a wpa_supplicant config file

This is an idea/suggestion for getting NetworkManager connecting to
networks configurations supported by wpa_supplicant, but for which no
management/UI elements yet exist.

We could allow the user to specify a wpa_supplicant configuration file
via nm-applet known to work for a particular network. This would enable
the use of WPA Enterprise (i.e., certificates, RADIUS, etc.) with EAP-
TLS and other authentication methods available in wpa_supplicant not yet
present in NetworkManager.
