To control automatic connections to a specific network, you can right-click on
the applet and choose "Edit Connections..." or run
/usr/bin/nm-connection-editor.  Find the connection you want in the tabs, then
click the "Edit..." button or double-click the connection.  There will be a
"Connect automatically" checkbox near the top.  Check/uncheck that however you
like, then hit OK.

NM will connect to the wireless network that you last successfully connected to,
if that network can be seen from scans.  You can delete networks you no longer
want from the connection editor which of course ensures that NM won't try to
connect to them again.  You can also lock a connection to a specific AP by
filling in the BSSID field in the connection editor; thus if you always want to
connect to a certain 'linksys' out of 5 other 'linksys' APs that your neighbors
are running, you can do that.

Basically, I think the existing methods should be able to provide what you need
to do, and we can likely tweak them if needed.  Can you give it a shot?  Thanks!
