I converted the new D-Bus API to use the BSS table instead of scan
results. This will hopefully resolve the multi-SSID issue you mentioned
earlier. I did only minimal testing with the script and
d-feet, so please let me know if I missed something in the changes.

This does not add any new signals yet, but the BSS property changes
would be easily available from wpa_bss_update() in wpa_supplicant/bss.c.
