Maybe, but *I* had never a need for it. I can do my VLAN and bridge configuration with ifupdown. Most PCs of mine don’t have WLAN cards, so I don’t need NM with running wpasupplicant. And those PCs have a static network configuration.

NM may be good for laptops, so put it in the laptop task and leave the rest alone in the default installation.

Shade and sweet water!
