The whole point of NetworkManager is to just work. Asking the user for
anything is not something that should be done unless it is absolutely
necessary, and the user can be expected to know it.
Asking for encryption keys is a valid thing to ask. Asking the user to
be able to know encodings is just insane. Even I don't know what
encoding most things fall into.
