I tried it out, I found a moment to do so.
As I have a cable modem (with dhcp). I tried to do so it doesn't work.
I think it's because the dhcpcd that I use, tries to get hardware control
to the card and not the logical device. Maybe this is wrong, but maybe it
has to, maybe it's possible, I don't know. If you really need it to be
done, you could ask any good programmer to add it to Linux (if you got
the money to pay him or her). But, I would first ask some extra people
first. :) Because, I too hate wasting money.
Hope this helps.
PS the maintaner of dhcpcd for Debian is: firstname.lastname@example.org, he
should know more about it. But, don't ask him, just wait a day or so, for
people to answer this email, he's probably a busy man.
