And then what guarantees us the KDE frontend is not going to get the same 
treatment KNetworkManager got for F8 (i.e. the backend getting upgraded to an 
experimental, completely incompatible snapshot which is not supported by the 
KDE frontend yet, and way too late in the release cycle (after the feature 
freeze!) so there's no way the KDE frontend can be fixed in time)?

The way NetworkManager 0.7 has been handled in F8 makes me very distrustful of 
such "one backend, multiple frontend" solutions.
