[Mageia-discuss] Add profiles support in draknetcenter

I have an idea, or say, feature request for draknetcenter.  It may be too late 
for Mageia 2 since its release schedule is set.  If it is feasible, it's okay 
for me to add it in Mageia 3.

draknetcenter (and net_applet) is actually good enough for my desktop PC.  
However for my laptop, I have different network settings for two network 
interfaces in the office.  NetworkManager can setup different profiles for 
each interface, and therefore in my laptop I disabled net_applet and use 
NetworkManager instead.  But it is really not stable, especially under KDE.  
Last week my NetworkManager failed to connect any wifi AP.  So I have to go 
back to use draknetcenter.

What do you think about this?  I've added an entry in the ideas page of the 
wiki too.
