When NetworkManager is run in daemon mode it does not create a pid file.
This is unpleasant for init systems like initng that rely on the
existence of a pid file to monitor the service. The other way how such
init systems monitor a process is to let them run in the foreground.
For this the daemon must not fork.
NM can be run is such a mode (--no-daemon) but then unfortunately
outputs everything to stdout. Imho it would be good if NM provided
something like a --verbose or --debug flag and only prints something to
stdout when run with this flag.
So in order to play more nicely with newer init systems NM should either
create a pid-file or provide a silent mode when run with in foreground.
