+1. I also, in the related thread, replied to dsd to ask about his
thoughts w.r.t this landing in the mainline. Since it follows the pre
0.96 approach of sugar keeping its settings in local connections.cfg
rather than share with gnome (which AIUI dsd's NM port patch does?)

Yes, this is the feedback I received from Jerry Vonau and Sridhar
(OLPC-au). I've cc'ed them to reply to this.
