Btw, I haven't seen that system wide configuration on OpenSUSE and
Fedora. I would like to see it in action. So far I am very nervous
about ditching network-admin, because no matter how it was stuck in
development, or it lacked features, it worked, it had "over the
distros" feel and so far Network Manager  has been "let's repeat
PulseAudio" all over the place. There should be very good
network-admin and NM integration or at least NM should heavily improve
their configuration dialogs and menus. Otherwise I still suggest to
leave network-admin and work on NM to improve it to get it finally
worthy to ditch good old g-s-t tool for good.

Just my two cents,
