That's of course possible but I'll prefer waiting 2-3 weeks for the current code
to become more mature and fully functional. I think that the API modifications
in anywhere should be transparent as it is possible thanks to the binding but
I'll keep this in mind.

Hm, the stickyness of nm-applet's behaviour is a little bit weird but I think that
arises from the tagline of NM which is "NetworkManager attempts to keep an active
network connection available at all times."
