Yeah, it is - it needs to be pulled in by something to get started, but
in this case it's not so we do the same thing in code. It's like this so
you don't end up blocking the boot unnecessarily waiting for the network
to be "up" when nothing needs it to be.

Doesn't matter any more though for this case. :-)
