I hate to repeat myself, but this simply doesn't work without too much
effort when commuting between two networks where there are a) two
different static IPs on the interface or b) one time dhcp is supported
and the other it's a static IP.

I really believe NM needs to have a way to manually choose between
different configurations for an interface .
