I was facing similar problems in my strongSwan IKEv2 plugin [1].
Interactive authentication is difficult and multiple active connection
is currently almost impossible to implement. I decided to strip these
features, as in most road-warrior scenarios this is not so important.

There have been some recent API changes:
- VPN secrets in separate settings (r4031)
- UUID, not connection ID is passed to auth dialog (r4053)

There is a NetworkManager PPA available at launchpad [2]. Just install
all the dev packages and you are ready to go. I'm also running a
strongSwan PPA [3] for my NM plugin, so you might want to check that out
to get another example how things work.
