Sounds like a good project to me, but I don't think I'd be a good mentor
for since I'm not familiar with the NM codebase at all. As for how much
work it would require, I think the basic client-side functionality could
possibly be "too simple" for you, WPS has a lot of additional
functionality (e.g. WPS support for the AP side).
