I was looking for information on NM yesterday and the information I saw
suggested that it was not intended to be a general network configuration
tool. But in fact seemed to be mostly suited for people who want to connect
to wireless networks opportunisticly and who use DHCP to get their wired
IP addresses. There was a statement that for static IP addresses it was
going to get that data from the network config scripts data.

Is there some roadmap documentation somewhere that suggests a more
ambitious plan?
