The port to Python 3 is not finished in the upstream.
Particularly it is still using pygtk, it seems no work in porting to
gtk+3 has been done yet.

I don't think I'm going to do it. If anybody will, many people will be grateful.
I personally suggest to look at net-wireless/iwd (it has its own client iwctl,
no other network managers like connman are necessary).
