Is there a list of (important) dbus methods exported by NM?  I'm trying
to work out a way of bringing up a wireless network early in the boot
process in F8 and have been unable to even get a list of devices.

Trying to run (which looks like it's supposed to work in 0.6):
 >>> import dbus
 >>> bus = dbus.SystemBus()
 >>> iface = bus.get_object('org.freedesktop.NetworkManager', '/org/freedesktop/NetworkManager')
 >>> devs = iface.getDevices(dbus_interface='org.freedesktop.NetworkManager')
      or
 >>> devs = iface.getDevices(dbus_interface='org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.Devices')

gives me:

dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod:
Method "getDevices" with signature "" on interface
"org.freedesktop.NetworkManager" doesn't exist

What am I missing?

Jonathan
