It uses ANY memory. That's more than is reasonable considering that the 
former solution (ifconfig) uses none.

Colin, let me very clear, I think what NM does for the desktop is very 
good, indeed.  I like not having to fiddle around to make WEP stuff work 
using iwconfig anymore. I appreciate what's been achieved.

That doesn't make it a more useful thing on a server.
