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.
Unless I misunderstand what Seth said in his last mail, NetworkManager is designed as a *replacement* for the distro's existing network startup scripts (although it only handles ethernet and wireless currently). Making it depend on the existing networking scripts defeats the purpose.

Sure it might be a bit confusing if it isn't properly integrated, but that just means it hasn't been set up correctly.
