So you want something that does exactly what NetworkManager does, but 
is not NetworkManager?

There's wicd, which is similar. I don't know of any others.

NetworkManager does what I want, but is too much of a Control Freak (even approaching Autocratic).  I don't have much experience with wicd, but have heard good things about it. 

Perhaps I should check out the Source for nm and wicd:  That should give me the "how", and Code Samples.
