Let me disagree a bit here: I do not expect non constructive criticism
from contributors since I expect them to be helpful and to want to fix
the issue :-) Plain criticism from users is okay, though (it's a kind
of feedback, as you already wrote).

However, I don't believe Lionel's goal was to blindly criticize
network-admin but to understand the situation wrt NetworkMagic.

Vincent, who's not always constructive either...
