While I'm not necessarily disagreeing with you, but perhaps you can
expand on what you think NM should be providing to dispatcher scripts
that it's not already. Unless we can detail what we think is missing,
the developers won't know.

Did you look at what I added to the upstream (gnome) bug? At least for
the NTP script case, I was able to shim between NM and the dhclient
script. It would have been trivial to simply port the script to NM
properly but I was more interested at the time in demonstrating a shim
interface. Well, that and being lazy. :-)
