I guess this is something that should be done by the Debian installer,
as there's a code in package's postinst which installs the
correct /etc/network/interfaces file if it doesn't exist, so I guess
it's never being run as the file has already been generated.

To Debian Installer maintainers: is it something we can fix for Jessie?
