Try "apt-get install ifplugd" ... A fantastic tool using run-parts

very nice tool, it works also with WLAN (ndiswrapper), if the WLAN interface
is already pre-configured with iwconfig.
Therefor my question is, is there a designed way to pre-configure a network
interface without activating it?
My current workaround is to use the lo interface to pre-configure wlan0 in
iface lo inet loopback
pre-up iwconfig wlan0 mode ad-hoc essid afulinux
wlan0 has no auto statement and therefor is only activated by ifplugd if the
HF part of the WLAN device is turned on (my notebook has a key to turn it on
and off). This is working fine with my current configuration, but however,
the configuration itself looks like a workaround for me...
Is there a designed way to configure things like this?
