Note that it has some nasty interactions on F7 with netplugd, and that
results on us missing on some features. IE: we have to disable
netplugd, so we don't detect ethernet-cable-plugged-in events -- this
can be a prob if the WAN connection is set to use dhcp. And I assume
even internal interfaces might do something in connect/disconnect
events (flush arp tables?).

I'm not sure - whatever does event mgmt on headless server setups for
Fedora. I don't think it's NM.

Ah, just means I don't think chkconfig calls belong there -- low priority...
