Probably not; I'm not sure the functionality would be widely used enough
to justify one.  That doesn't mean your needs are not valid, just that
this is the first time I've heard of anyone requesting this, leading me
to conclude that it's not a widely requested behavior at this time.

NM emits D-Bus signals when new connections are added to system
settings, and (for 0.8 and earlier) the "user settings service" also
does this.  You are probably interested in listening to the user
settings service on D-Bus for the NewConnection signal.

Dispatcher scripts run in root context, while the connections you're
probably interested in are stored in the users session.  Thus the
dispatcher scripts simply cannot access that user information.  The best
bet is probably to run a small program in the user's session that
listens for new network connections, and then runs your script whenever
a new one shows up.
