Simultaneous Wired and Wireless connections

This may be a situation where the solution is "Don't use networkmanager", but I wanted to get your learned input before I went down that route...

I was running Hardy on my previous desktop machine, using both a wireless card and a wired connection at the same time. This was my interfaces file:

# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface eth0 inet static

auto eth0

iface ath0 inet dhcp
   wpa-driver madwifi
   wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

auto ath0
The wired connection was used for a few local addresses ( - - other machines, a network-enabled printer, etc. - and the wireless port for everything else.

Now, I have a new desktop, with Jaunty installed... and networkmanager. Is this configuration too far outside of nm's comfort zone, or is there a way I can configure things such that networkmanager will be compatible with my situation? I am ready, willing, and able to make code modifications if needed.
