Should only depend on NetworkManager-glib, which itself should not pull
in NetworkManager in the future.  The only possible fixes for #351101
(removing NetworkManager-glib removes half the desktop) broke multilib
setups (#451519) and thus we have to do anaconda magic for F10 before
you can 'rpm -e NetworkManager' and have everything work like you
probably want it.
