I personally can't believe nobody has written an xfce gui frontend for 
connman yet.

connman fits the typical usage models where Xfce as a desktop makes 
sense and a lot of distro's that would package Xfce would totally be 
benefitted by having some integration with connman, just like 
Moblin/MeeGo currently has.

so, this is a personal call out from me (as MeeGo developer who 
maintains the xfce4 packages for MeeGo) to the Xfce community to get a 
connman UI frontend for Xfce4 developed.

Anyone interested?

This is an excellent starter project. Connman has an extensive dbus API 
that is well documented and has plenty of good examples and test cases 
(even in python) available to make something simple and get it working 
quickly. I can potentially assist if people are interested in taking 
this up.
