In amoungst all the rambling in this message, I think this one bit is worth
thinking about. Such a program -- call it ifscheme -- would need to be a
tad more complicated than I made out since it should down and up
interfaces which are mapped using it when the scheme changes. Which
means keeping a list of interfaces that were upped using it, I suppose,
or iterating over the interfaces file and checking each mapped
interface. Would you take such a program in ifupdown?
