I think it would be very good to "once and for all" define what offline mode 
really is supposed to do and how things should and shouldn't work when enabled 
- then work on making sure everything actually works like that. And if setting 
offline mode automatically is really ever a good idea. (I think not)

I also think actual internet connectivity and changes of its status should be 
handled automatically and that's where I'm currently putting the focus of my 
work (#939318).
