If there is no real documentation, a Wiki of some kind could be set up for NM, so that knowledge could be added as it is mentioned here in this list.

Yeah, sorry :(  The current dbus interface is pretty ad-hoc and hasn't
changed much in 2 years.  It won't necessarily be easy to pull out the
details (especially for activation of a device with wireless security),
but I'm happy to help where I can.  I've done nm clients in both C and

0.7 bits are much better thought out and correctly use interfaces and
objects in a much more understandable manner.  That also means it will
be a lot simpler to extract the D-Bus interface details and put them
into documentation formats.
