As soon as I get DAM approval, I'll put my package intuitively into

Description: Automatic IP configuration detection for laptops
 A utility to locate current network address via arp requests
 and perform heavy reconfigurations based on its findings.
 "intuitively" is intended for laptop users or people who use their
 machines in different networks all the time. It is meant to be run
 from the PCMCIA network initialization scripts or the command line.

Or you can use divine (which has a config file format which makes
/etc/printcap seem readable), which intuitively is based on.

If you can't wait for it to get into debian, then add

deb-src http://www.samfundet.no/~tfheen/debian potato main

to your sources list and apt-get install intuitively.

Unix _IS_ user friendly... It's just selective about who its friends are.
