Bug#241773: Is an issue with USB network devices as well

retitle 241773 Awkward to use network cards with "hotplug" logical interface (CardBus, USB)

Since USB network devices are also managed via hotplug, this is an issue
with them as well. Is there any reliable way to detect whether something is
a hotplug device, and have *that* be what determines whether it has a
hotplug mapping in /etc/network/interfaces or not?

Or: correct me if I'm wrong, but since hotplug doesn't do anything for what
doesn't get plugged in, why not have the mapping in /etc/network/interfaces
by default for all interfaces? Ugly, admittedly, but it wouldn't hurt,
would it? Again, if this is not a solution, please LART me.
