No, it does not. It seems that more simple cases like DHCP, WLAN, mobile 
broadband work fine. Yet knm is still fragile and that's a proof of that. So 
no, it is not unusable for everyone.

I'm sorry, but "does not work for me so do not ship it" is not the way to go. 
network-manager-kde or its plasma widget will work fine for many people with 
less advanced needs.

What's more, there is no need to provide any workaround. Just install network-
manager-gnome if it works better for you. Nothing keeps you from doing it.
