I think I already said this, but I don't mind saying it again. If we are
going to replace /etc/init.d/network with a script that parses one or
more config-files to setup the network, it has to be able to handle:

* multiple network cards
* IP aliases
* DHCP and BOOTP
* static routes
* preferably also things like arcnet

Anything less will mean people would still need to setup things manually.
Also note a frontend for both console and X can be easily created by
switching between whiptail and gdialog (if I remembered the name
correctly; it seems to be a GTK whiptail-clone).
