I must say I don't find it particularly difficult to set up OpenVPN
by following the OpenVPN documentation.

I wouldn't really like to feel I had to use, say, Konqueror
to get KMail working.

I mean, NM and OpenVPN seem to me to be completely different applications.

I suspect I am in a minority of one,
but I wish NM would just concentrate on getting WiFi working,
which was its original aim, I think.
I don't want to use it as a sort of alternative OS.
