GUI? What GUI? You don't need to write a new GUI.

Create a D-BUS daemon that NetworkManager can interact with.
NetworkManager is all about managing the network and it is exactly where
firewall configuration should be.

Take notes from Colin Walters reply about needing profiles.  You could
have a firewall profile per each Wi-Fi point you connect to. nm-applet
should provide tweaking of the profile if necessary. You could have
inotify pop-ups from nm-applet when something needs firewall access (in
or out).
