I haven't know these before... This sounds handy.
My default network manager configuration though only gets activated after user 
login. Does a nm configuration as you propose enable network before the user 
logs in?

So basically, the point about network manager is: do we need network access 
before the user logs (YES: for NFS etc.) and how can this be handled by 
network manager...
