I think you're more likely to find a network engineer with (possibly
limited) programming skills.

That's certainly where I would categorize myself.

And you're the first I've seen suggest, or even imply, that going that
direction instead might be more fruitful; seemed to me that the skills
necessary to make a decent network engineer would support learning 
programming better than the other way round -- though in fact I personally
did it the other way.
