Peter is pretty busy elsewhere, but I have some time to get this feature

This should be straightforward enough to change.  For our initial test
code it was just more straightforward to match the SSIDs, but changing
our side to use the network object instead is fine.

Also straightforward, and also makes sense for us too (in the near-term
future this will be useful).

I was examining how the Network object "Enabled" property behaves, so
perhaps it might actually just make more sense to make this another
related property?  I’m not quite sure what it would be called though,
"TemporarilyDisabled" (defaulting to false) seems a bit unwieldy, even
if it is descriptive.
