So, to the question as in this message's subject.

Given that I have several systems where I have massaged various files in
/etc/network and /etc/NetworkManager by hand how can I get them back to
a state where all of the network configuration is managed by Network
Manager?  I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling network-manager but
that doesn't seem to do it.

The one file that matters most to have your connections managed by NetworkManager is /etc/network/interfaces.

You can comment out all the entries there (with the exception of the one for the "lo" loopback interface) to have all your connections managed by NetworkManager.
