 Since Paraguay and Uruguay (and others) deployments has been asking for 3G
 modem support, I have been working on it and here is the patch

 What it does?

 1. Modifies jarabe.model.network, adding the GSM settings classes required
 to store and manage this kind of connections, and changes the connection
 list indexation from ssids to uuids (so i had to modify
 jarabe.desktop.meshbox and deviceicon.network)

 2. Adds a new control panel section for basic settings information for gsm

 3. Adds a new device icon for gsm devices (where i also modified a few
 lines concerning the changes at jarabe.model.network)

 TODO: Since I only have GSM modems available, its the only 3G device i
 added, theres still other kind of devices but the work should be similar
 (Adding new classes for specific settings)

 Test case:

 1. Go to control panel, Modem Configuration
 2. Set username, password, number, and apn
 3. Save changes and restart
 4. Connect the device and wait until the device icon appears
 5. Click on connect item
 7. Click on disconnect item

 Waiting for review,
