Doesn't that already answer your question about the user interface? :-)
One request: please make vlan support optional so that netcfg still works
when the bits needed for it are not available. It's probably not relevant
for all architectures.
For installs where netcfg is run after anna (CD-based installs), the
loading of additional udebs should probably be done by the relevant part
of hw-detect (ethdetect) and not by netcfg itself. And for e.g. netboot
images the vlan udeb would need to be included in the initrd for relevant
