TBH I'd rather see that implemented as part of NetworkManager itself. Using a
separate daemon for this looks wrong to me.
VPN autoconnect is definitely on the TODO list of NetworkManager [1] and
upstream would be happy to help with this effort.
Please communicate this to the author of vpnautoconnect, maybe he is interested
in joining the NM development and implement it in NM proper.

Cheers,
Michael

Can I please have a daemon that monitors if vpnautoconnect works correctly?
perhaps vpnautoconnectmonitord? And then that one needs to be kicked
occasionally if the user changes the configuration, so we add another daemon
for this ....

I would really strongly prefer if nm got fixed for all cases where it
currently doesn't work. If automatically connecting to VPN connections
currently is not in network manager, this should certainly be implemented
there, and not as a separate daemon.

cheers

/o seems I missed to look at your email address.
That said, I know that Dan Williams (NM upstream) is eager to get this feature
into NM. Feel free to join #nm on freenode or the upstream devel mainling list[1].
