PackageKit Integration with NetworkManager

For PackageKit we don't want to be refreshing caches or checking for updates when there is no network connection. Does anyone have a short guide on how to monitor and query the connected state of nm (session or system), just like evolution does? Any nm guys want to write me a quick patch or jot down some quick code? Cheers.

EDIT: Done, thanks guys.
