BTW, this is the same catch-22 that one has for nfs-mounted home

The whole problem was the presentation of NM as a "replacement"
for the old network stuff when in fact they have almost nothing
in common. The old network code was flawless with static
IPs and unchanging DHCP assigned network connections and just
absolutely dead horrible at wireless and portable computers
that hop around between networks.

Well, it wasn't easy but it worked OK if you understood the weirdness
of wpa_supplicant and set up multiple network profiles (which I still
have).

You're right though...NM is NOT a network management replacement.  And
unless they provide it with a relatively easy way to grok that "the
network HAS to be up at boot time", it never will and Anaconda should
give you the option of using the old network scripts or WM.
