I mistook your mail for suggesting that all of your NM script code
would be duplicated by the boot sequence - this isn't true for any of
the "am  I stolen?" code which would run on every connection through
NM, but in the boot sequence would only ever run when the lease has
expired. And because the NM script would be trivial to delete, it
makes the "am I stolen?" code somewhat pointless.

Apart from that, I guess your ideas would hold up, but we might be
missing something.
