I think they're two separate issues, actually.  But a newer version of
NM won't really *fix* its crapitudity, it's rather endemic.  It will
just take care of some specific complaints we have (the nature of
which I don't recall at the moment).

I am ambivalent on enable or disable by default; I simply said that it
may be reasonable to disable by default.  Mike simply uses systems
that don't work properly with a wide range of software (including NM),
so he doesn't like it. ;-)
