You can set up a static IP connection with NM 0.7 and set it to not
autoconnect, at which point you can manually choose which connection
you'd like to make from the menu whenever you want to do so.  Then you
can delete the "Auto Ethernet" connection and you can have complete
manual control over when and what your network settings for the ethernet
card are.
