Waiting for the network to be up on the BeagleBone Black

It finally hit me today as I was reading over this article, and it should have hit me sooner. The article mentions that in order to get past the network startup hurdles in systemd, you need to wait on the NetworkManager service. However, I use connman. It didn't occur to me until today that they provide exactly the same functionality, and I just needed to swap one with the other. Now,  I have all my network dependent programs simply After=connman.service in the systemd service descriptor files, and they're golden.
