It's a workaround to support the basic dbus API from 0.6 branch. We
need to keep the most used methods so that things like status, sleep,
wake would still work with the upgrade to 0.7. So we got the old
sleep() and new Sleep(). dus-binding-tool (that generates C bindings
from the introspection file) produces the same C functions for "sleep"
and "Sleep" and thus won't compile anymore. In short, you can probably
ignore nm-manager-client.xml, it's only required for building
