I do not see why they should exclude each other. network-scripts/NM
coexist in Fedora; Fedora ifup will request NM to start interface
if required; if NM is not up it will do it itself.

That is exactly what I'd love to see in the long run here.

The real decision to be made is about network configuration files
future. Currently they diverged far too far from what Fedora is using
without offering any significant added value(I stay corrected; blino
probably can say more here). Unification with Fedora initscripts would
allow to reuse their infrastructure and seamlessly integrate NM.

And of course we seem to be the only distribution to require
network start before D-Bus. That needs to be decided upon as you cannot
start NM without D-Bus but if NM is providing service we cannot
start D-Bus without it ...
