We want to allow a network manager to enable and disable available network interfaces (wifi, ethernet, 4/3/2g, ...) and set which is preferred (maybe by an ordering on the interfaces).  We may also want to use this entry point to allow configuring particular interfaces (APs for wifi, dhcp/etc. for supporting interfaces), or maybe that should be separate.
(Probably goes without saying, but this would be a privileged API.)

Posted file Proposal of Network Manager API (obsolete) —
Is this API going to be internal or available to the content? If it's available to the content, there might be a few change to make it more "weby" and it might be interesting to merge a part of it with the Network Status API (aka Network API).

I think Thinker's proposal is for a Gecko-internal component. Bug 717122 is the bug for this. Let's discuss it over there.

Proposal of Network Manager API

Good stuff. Moved this over to bug 717122 since this bug is about public DOM api.

Summary: Network manager API → [meta] Network manager API
I've nominated the dependent bugs so I'm not sure we need this meta bug to still have kilimanjaro/basecamp+.
Depends on: 767375
Alias: b2g-network-manager

So far we haven't found the need for a content-facing network management API. This may change in the future, but for now this isn't a blocker.
