Because the NetworkManager-openconnect package *used* to expect the
auth-dialog to be provided by the OpenConnect package, it isn't trivial
to just update to OpenConnect 3.0x. You'd end up without an auth-dialog,
and that's not going to work so well.

The 0.9 and 0.8.4 releases of NetworkManager-openconnect will both
include the auth-dialog for themselves, so they *can* be used with
OpenConnect 3.0x.

Users of older versions of NetworkManager-openconnect will have to stick
with OpenConnect v2.26, or play tricks to build the auth-dialog for
themselves somehow.
