For me, the most important thing I simply can't do is set a preferred network 
order. I've configured / hacked NM to where it reliabily uses the 3G card in 
my laptop. However, what I would like for NM to do is try wired connections 
first. If I bother plugging in a network cable, I really do want to use it. 
Then, it should use known wireless networks. If none are available, activate 
the Verizon air card... 

I guess the order would have to be configurable - wired, known wireless, 3G, 
unknown wireless are the four categories that come to mind.
