Yes, we are hard trying to make NetworkManager actually usable by both
coding and helping out the users. But I'm probably *not* spending time
with anyone just because he is trying to be loud enough.

This is not NetworkManager question at all and as NetworkManager uses
wpa_suppicant for all of this, if it doesn't work in wpa_supplicant,
it won't work in NM and NM can't be blamed for that.

Yes. When things seem to be broken in the lower level, it must be
described carefully. If it's a configuration mistake or something,
the configuration should be fixed by the user.

If the user wants friendly help, he definitely MUST behave in a friendly
manner. Even then it's nobody's obligation to provide it.
