These config options are not yet supported in nm. I'm working on a
subset of it. See my mails about EAP/TTLS for more details.

Right. The framework is already there, but we don't have the GUI bits
to ask for the information and transfer them to wpa_supplicant.

You mean starting a script to use another wpa_supplicant with config
fired up from the ifup/ifdown scripts integrated in

I never tried this. Not sure what happen if two version of
