great opportunity for somebody to jump in.
Is there somewhere where all of the messages that can be sent are

Jeremy has an excellent answer to this question :) There's
rfkill framework in the kernel, your upstream Sony ACPI kernel module
needs to hook into that. In the short term, if you _really_ don't want
to make the world a better place by pressuring upstream Sony ACPI module
authors to do the right thing, look at dbus-send, use the D-Bus property
Guilt trip, eh? :)
interface on the base NetworkManager object, and set the
property to true/false depending on what the custom events say. By
doing this and not making upstream better, you agree to sacrifice 3
small, adorable, mewing kittens each time you flip the rfkill switch.
