So this is great, and ties in with some other stuff we're doing.
However, one change I'd like to request.  Instead of putting the
interface name into the VPN data (like the other vpnc-specific options),
lets put it into the NMSettingConnection setting's 'interface-name'

Sounds reasonable.

But (NMConnection *connection) is specific to a VPN connection and does
not have an interface-name property, no? If I got it right I can not pass
it to nm_connection_get_setting_connection() and therefore
(NMSettingConnection *s_con) is missing. So do we have to create
(NMConnection *connection) and (NMConnection *vpn) and pass around both?

No, the NMConnection contains multiple NMSettings (basically, one for
each page of the connection editor). So you can call both
get_setting_connection() and get_setting_vpn() on it.

Ok, I think I got it... Will reply with a patch. Thanks for your help!
