If you wont use distro specific config files tu set static IP, the user
will change his settings, will reboot, and he won't see the same IP
address that he set before rebooting. That could counfuse the user.
And adding an init script that restore NM settings after the distro-
specific isn't the good way IMHO. We have a layer to be able of distro-
specific abstraction work, it's g-s-t, I don't think that rewrite code
or find solutions to problems already solved is the best way of work.
