Having downloaded NetworkManager I see that there are two things that
I need that it does not do.  Firstly it currently requires DHCP, and while
that is fine for networks I control, others may not have it and do I need
the ability to define static data which this does not give me.

Secondly as far as I can see currently this is integrated into GNOME, but
not KDE.  While obviously I can run a GNOME app under KDE part of the
point of an app like this is its menu applet, and unless something changed
recently GNOME applets do not run under KDE.

However it may be a good starting point.
