I think you did not get what I meant:
You want n-m to not touch some of your network configuration.
And I say: if you do not want n-m to do bad stuff:
just not install it.
We expect n-m to do scary stuff, but n-m is just a brain-extension for
people who can't get to configure their network on their own.
This is why I answered that I can't also stop your from doing bad stuff.
In real world, Xen runs on servers. And servers does not use n-m.
They use static configuration in /e/n/i. Final point.
I guess that n-m got installed because you installed an entire graphical
environment, which is just *bad* *bad* *bad* on a server.
