NM and ifconfig are not comparable. Now I think saying that NM
shouldn't use very much in the way of resources in the static routing
case is a reasonable request; certainly with the push for
virtualization and running lots of OS instances it makes sense. But
it's just not reasonable to say "ANY" memory; that's not a reasonable
constraint to operate under. We're trying to build an operating
system; that necessitates adding APIs and features, for example
network status change notification which is useful everywhere.
It's perfectly fine though if someone's "create mediawiki appliance
image" tool strips out stuff; but we should be moving the core OS to
be more unified and featureful in general.
