Documentation of createWirelessNetwork

This is information I've found by reading the source code. It REALLY

The parameters are as follows:

   1. Wireless Device Object Path
   2. ESSID
   3. Security word, which has the following options:

    * IW_AUTH_CIPHER_NONE; no additional parameters are required.
    * IW_AUTH_CIPHER_WEP40, IW_AUTH_CIPHER_WEP104; additional
parameters handled by nm_ap_security_wep_new_deserialize
IW_AUTH_CIPHER_CCMP; additional parameters handled by
    * NM_AUTH_TYPE_WPA_EAP; additional parameters are handled by
nm_ap_security_wpa_eap_new_deserialize (iter)

    4. Key (string)
    5. Authentication algorithm, which is either

For non-EAP WPA encryptions, the additional parameters are:
    4. Key (string)
    5. WPA version, which is either IW_AUTH_WPA_VERSION_WPA or
    6. Key Management, which is either IW_AUTH_KEY_MGMT_802_1X or

I haven't documented the EAP parameters.
