It could spawn NetworkManager as a subprocess and use the peer-to-peer
D-Bus protocol to talk to it. I think quite a few other programs do
things this way.
On the other hand, having NetworkManager available all the time enables
things like management tools to use its API to query system status,
instead of guessing it from kernel information and heuristic analysis of
some files under /etc.
