Are there any plans to support NetworkManager more wholly?
Sugar (at least the 0.84 on OLPC OS) seems to store network
information separately, which means that we can't leverage gconf or
share settings with the system or GNOME. It would be much easier if
Sugar stored network settings in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/. This
would let us leverage the full feature set of NetworkManager, and it
also lets connections be shared with GNOME.
