NMConnection is the representation of all connections, both system and
user. But you shouldn't need to modify it if you're using the timestamp
for the priority.

No, but my suggestion was to make it modifiable by the user. NM just
uses the highest value there to pick the first network to try, so
timestamp is really a good mapping of what you're trying to do.
