Makes sense. I suppose knetworkmanager will still be available from the
repositories in all cases, so I am probably going to propose a very
simple Kubuntu-specific patch to disable dbusmenu for knetworkmanager:
Yesterday I added a way to disable dbusmenu through an environment variable.
This is quite hackish, but it does not require extending kdelibs API and
it can also be set by a user who would want to disable dbusmenu for a
problematic application we overlooked, so I think it can be handy when
something breaks.
