Right; NM 0.7 and later is definitely _not_ targetted at a "very narrow
niche".  It's targeted at hopefully >= 75% of the use-cases of Fedora.

Perhaps this weekend (unless I'm still fixing bugs with NM in general)
I'll integrate the work Soren did for a system config service which will
allow connections to be brought up before you log in.  That's the only
real blocker to using NM in a GUI-less server-type environment if you
like.  Other than that, most of the bits for static IP support are in
(applet bits to follow), the options to lock things like 802.3 duplex,
speed, and other stuff are in-progress by Tambet, and most of the
wireless options work.  

By the holidays, I expect we can flip NM on by default in Rawhide, even
if it's not default in F8.
