do you use something else or do you just configure your network in
/etc/network/interfaces ? NM will never touch a device if you configure
it in that file (up to now at least ... not sure what happens if we at
any point switch to systemd-networkd from ifupdown) so you can safely
let it installed and just do your network config via command line (then
it will also still provide the info to desktop apps on the dbus that
the system is off/online, many apps use that feature nowadays)
