Very relevant. Note that part of the delay comes from NM -- if you
search there's been a thread (here? fedora-devel?) on removing delays
before scan/connect in NM.

 - Preserving "last scan results" may improve user experience.

 - Waking up the WLAN & scanning ASAP is key -- I think we are
reasonably good there already

 - Trying to pick quickly which AP to connect to is problematic. The
preferred AP may only appear on the 2nd or 3rd scan. See earlier
discussions about asking NM to wait _longer_ on that task to work on a
more complete list of available networks.
