I am wondering if there is some body allready busy with integrating openvpn into the network manager... if so, could he or she contact me for I would like to support him or her; if nobody is integrating openvpn into the network manager perhaps I can start with the work needed to do so.

That's not the point. If you do a steady click-click-click on the
applet, that should not trigger a new scan each click. At best, you'd
click, NM would scan, and if you clicked again within 5 or 10 seconds
you're out of luck.
So you'll never be able to get instantaneous scans _every_ time you
click on the applet, because that's a denial of service.
