Then why the hell was system-config-network removed from Fedora 12? It
was never in *ANY* of the Live CD's beta testing Fedora 12, and when
people asked about it, they were given what can now be said was
outright double-talk about how the usb/serial support for external
modems that was a part of system-config-network was to be included in

Hell, if you read the WWW site for NetworkManager you'll get the
impression that it supports *ALL* networking devices just as
system-config-network did.

If NetworkManager had *NO* intentions of of supporting noncellular
modems then why was system-config-network even removed from Fedora 12
to begin with?

Someone was clearly *NOT* thinking here.
