I don't mean dropping them, just adaptimg them (except ifcfg-*)
It looks much easier to write an independent file and drop it in
a folder than to programatically edit ifcfg-*.
- make drakxtools read/write NM config files. People can use drakx*
   or the DE tool at their will.
- make mganetapplet live and use it for desktops that don't have
   an specific applet. In Gnome, nm-applet fits better than mga one,
   and I suppose it happens the same for KDE. Probably there is no
   specfic applet for others.
- if NM supports bonding and VPN, you can almost kill ifcfg-* files.
   That is the future.
