Nope, it doesn't.  Kind of a thorny issue from a UI perspective, since
obviously static IPs aren't dynamic :)  There's been some discussion
about this, but the long and short of it is that we'll likely just have
to suck it up and work out some sort of UI that 1) doesn't suck, and 2)
only appears if you've configured static IPs somewhere and not before.
NM 0.7 material I believe.
