Default NetworkManager: I want to believe, but...

So, the FeatureMoreNetworkManager wiki page says that NetworkManager is
supposed to have new "Chuck Norris" features like supporting static IP
addresses. It didn't work for me on a fresh F9 install, which then was a
headache etc etc. (Even sytem-config-network had the right info, yet
interface kept coming up dhcp.) So, as the Feature page says, it sure would
be an advantage if it worked.

Except, uh, what advantage does this bring me once it's set up? Why have a
daemon and applet and dbus infrastructure monitoring something which by
definition *is not going to change*?

I'm not trying to troll -- I just don't get it. It seems like there's
nothing in the "plus" column here. What am I missing?
