I think it would be better to use the /etc/networking/interfaces as
there are some hooks to do this. This would allow you to keep away
from NetworkManager's complexity

from "man interfaces" look at the "/usr/local/sbin/map-scheme" + and
up flush-mail.

 iface lo inet loopback

       mapping eth0
            script /usr/local/sbin/map-scheme
            map HOME eth0-home
            map WORK eth0-work

       iface eth0-home inet static
            up flush-mail

       iface eth0-work inet dhcp
