Someone might be in a situation where they may need to re-enable NM
without a working network connection.. (go figure).. I am,, really,
appalled that a method to tame/control/enable/disable NM does not yet
exist in the GUI (and in fact, instead, all GUI network configuration
has been moved into NM, and while I've not tested Jaunty yet,
historically, it's been really bad at it.)
