It looks like NM uses gconf, so you can use
gconftool-2 to read and change settings:

(Of course, there's this on the horizon:
  Migrating from GConf to GSettings
so we may be in for another iteration of "this
distribution is run by crack smokers who got rid of
a subsystem right when it started working" versus
"this distribution is run by pedantic nerds who won't
give me teh new shiny" flamage.)
