Actually, I fixed this bug this morning: the new API endpoint is at 
'/version/' (the daily package has it).

Gavin is working on sorting out the documentation side of this but 
basically, you can call '/version/' and you get a JSON dict back.  The 
dict has a 'capabilities' entry: a list of all the features that MAAS 
supports (e.g. http://paste.ubuntu.com/7163362/).  'networks-management' 
is the name of the capability you're looking for.  Of course, a missing 
'/version/' endpoint means the capability isn't supported.
