Patches (both for the manpage, and for the code) gratefully accepted.

I'll probably add some more to if{up,down}.8 in the next few days, but
patches would likely make that happen a lot faster, and the result be a
lot more complete.

In the meantime, the examples in the default /e/n/interfaces
are probably more or less complete. Failing that, perusing
either the output of `strings /sbin/ifup' or the appendices of
http://ifupdown.sourceforge.net/ifupdown-0.5.1.ps.gz might be helpful.

I don't speak for anyone save myself. GPG encrypted mail preferred.
