nm-applet, feature request: sort vpn connections above wi-fi networks when the icon is in the top-right corner of the screen
I use an XFCE configuration with the system tray located in the top right corner. When I click on the icon, the Wi-Fi netwok list is empty (because it takes a second or two for NM to search for the networks), and I am tempted to immediately move the mouse pointer to the VPN tab, as that's my most common use case for NM.
The problem is that while I am moving the mouse, NM manages to find some networks, and the amount of lines in the menu changes, so I end up clicking on a Wi-Fi network name at best, or on the desktop directly because the VPN Connections menu entry is now a few centimetres lower.
This is super annoying, and I guess it doesn't happen when the icon is in the bottom-right corner, because then the mouse pointer goes up, not down.
