We're not doing this to work around #403805. That's a udev bug, which
should not ship in etch, since the fix for RC bug #403804 will also fix

I really dislike spamming the interfaces file with this huge and ugly
comment. The release notes are a better place to document this kind of

I also agree with Steve that nobody is going to understand the
circumstances when it's safe to remove the allow-hotplug. Moreover,
there's no _reason_ to remove the allow-hotplug, since if your interface
is in fact not hotpluggable, it's a total no-op to leave it in.
