Not really :(  It's going to change in a way that's nicely specified in
0.7 though, but that doesn't help you now.  What you're likely running
into is the badly designed (I admit it) wireless security option bits of
the D-Bus API for NM.  When creating a wireless network, you need to
pass the security info to NM.  It's fairly linux specific and the # and
type of the options passed depend on the first option (we_cipher).  The
code is probably your best guide here.
