I added this functionality to NM but the trigger-points are in the
distribution-specific code.

On SUSE, you set NM_CONTROLLED=no in the network interface's config file
and NM will not handle it.  Personally, I don't know why you would ever
want NM to not handle an interface ;-) but people asked.

It would be trivial to add the functionality to any other distribution,
