puh, if we have neither sed, awk nor perl then we should consider letting
the boot-floppies package with the old /etc/init.d/network script and
assume that everybody, who starts with the bootfloppies package will
soon install netbase, too and with that the whole base system.

So I make the following proposals:

1. we can use perl 
   (although, if it will be possible we rewrite it just using sed)

2. (apart from your mail) we make this package for kernel-2.2.x 
   with it's nice features (when adding a new interface the basic route
   is set automatically, too etc...)

   When everything is ready we try to make some `uname -r` questions to
   support the older kernels, too - but I think nobody tries to upgrade
   netbase who is unwilling to upgrade the kernel.

Comments ?
