HAL just got rfkill support in HAL 0.5.9.  That means we can finally get
NM to use use it.  NM will automatically monitor the status of the
rfkill keys (via HAL) and enable/disable the device automatically.
There shouldn't be a need for external scripts of any kind.

Interesting; that should also be handled by HAL at the highest level if
needed.  It's intimately tied into rfkill, and therefore should be
handled by the same code/framework (ie, not NM) that actually handles
the rfkill key events.
