If you configure an interface in /e/n/i, NM will ignore it. This, from my
perspective is "just works" for the computer-interested. :-)

/e/n/i (through scripts in the wpasupplicant package) supports all of that
in a really easy-to-use fashion. Check out the README.Debian file in the
wpasupplicant package (and man interfaces to see how mapping works).
Of course, it's way easier to get NM to do the heavy lifting for you... ;-)
