I agree. If that happens I will seriously think about moving to
another distro (I have been using Debian since around 1999). Or maybe
to a *BSD.

Just for a record: on this _laptop_ the network is configured from
/etc/network/interfaces with extensively used mapping and self-written
scripts; also with wpa_supplicant for wireless and ifplugd to bring up
eth0 and openvpn tunnels when required. Never felt a need to switch to
something like wicd or network-manager.
