Networkmanager-iwd

Just for the heck of it...

I've always had good luck with iwd

I installed iwd and set up NM to use it as a backend
Then I decided to get rid of wpa_supplicant all together using networkmanager-iwd.

Got a little nervous about half way through but I persevered!

I re-installed networkmanager-openvpn
nm-connection-editor and ntp.

No breakage so far, I'm pretty happy with it.
