I don't think there is a way.  I don't know of it anyhow.

On some systems you could get away with using the new dbus code to
contact NetworkManager and see if there is a connection.  I'm not sure
how to do this :-).  And, while this would work great for me, it
definitely wouldn't work for most users, I think.
