As I was refactoring cnetworkmanager, I added a wrapper around
- it frees the user from specifying the interface for each call,
  relying on the introspection data or on a default_interface
  specified for a class
- it accesses properties as if they were dictionary members
- it wraps the calls to translate object paths to proxy objects,
  integers to enumeration classes etc.

Would people be interested in making it a more general purpose
thing, and perhaps integrating it with dbus-python?;f=dbusclient;h=c6473deac95ed26a0b409c01a92cf4b08103bfa5;hb=HEAD
