Thanks, applied.

That's fine for me. I would like to see NM starting to use this to see
how it works in practice.

Would you be fine with getting that integrated into the developers'
documentation (http://w1.fi/wpa_supplicant/devel/)? It already contains
a page about the control interface commands and DBus interface could be
described there, too. This is built using Doxygen based on the files in
the wpa_supplicant/doc directory.
