This already works, but it's unfortunately not quite flexible enough.
Here's the bridge stanza from one of my machines:
iface br0 inet static
bridge_ports eth3 eth4
# this is a Hack. ifup/down requires an IP for this interface even
# though we don't want one, so we assign bullshit and remove it once
# the bridge is up.
up ip addr del 10.20.30.40 dev br0
ifupdown requires an "inet static" interface to have an address, but a
bridge doesn't always need an IP. I need to file a bug on this.
