I have the vague idea for a program that listens to changes to certain
gconf-keys (/system/osso/connectivity/IAP/current sounds like a
candidate) and have the hope that a connection to a network gets stored
there. Then one could invoke shell scripts depending on the name of the
network one connected to.

This might make it a bit easier to connect to a Bluetooth network or a
USB network without requiring a terminal every time: You'd simply create
dummy IAPs for these and the shell script would set up the actual

I don't know, maybe Nokia already implemented something like that, but
up to now I did not find anything, I didn't search very hard though...
