well, there are a lot of ltsp users out there using AD servers for
authentication and pulling off /home/$USER via CIFS from their AD
server ...

should we special-case NM to not start up at all if the ltsp-server
package is present or any kind of AD auth is used (that would be wrong
imho, sinbce you might just have ltsp for demo or test purposes
installed on your laptop, but i see no other option)
