Excellent to hear, I'm looking forward to deploying this on my home
server. NM has gotten really stable for me over the past few days, so
I'm overall very pleased with things given that a solution for headless
setups is being worked on.

(un)related question, one problem I'm currently experiencing on all my
boxes that run NM is that ntp starts up before a network connection is
available. It's not a huge issue but it would be a nice thing to fix
down the line.
