Yes; I was expecting to change the interfaces to the applet as well to a
simple byte array like you suggest.  Basically, NM will end up providing
a function for the wireless interface that returns a dictionary of
key/value pairs, one of which will happen to be a bytes array with a key
of 'ssid'.

Yes; I finished the import this weekend and deleted the applet from the
NM module in SVN.  It's a pretty straight copy and extrication of the
sources from the NM module last week to a new module in SVN.

nminfotest.c will be talking to the info-daemon, which happens to be
implemented by applets.  These interfaces will change heavily in the
very near future when we start doing the dict-based configuration; we
need to map out those interfaces first, but that's not hard.
