Well I happen to be sure that the init systemd regardless of which 
flavor of the month it is should handle this because it is responsible 
to signal the service(s) and or order the service after the network 
connection is established.

To me it's pointless to have the plethora of network managment 
application that exist out there playing some kind of middle man there 
talking to the init system and telling it when it's ready or when it's gone.

And here comes the bigger question what is keeping all you networking 
guys from simply combine all that effort and coming up with one single 
network application that everybody can use happily from embedded to 
servers to desktop?
