This has been suggested before but AIUI nameif has problems/limitations 
renaming eth0.

The correct solution seems to be to use udev rewriting rules to make sure 
interfaces keep their name.

We will work on implementing this in Debian Installer before the next beta 
release. Both Ubuntu and Marco d'Itri have offered to help with that.

For existing users we should make sure this issue will be documented in 
the Release Notes for Etch. I'm filing a bug against release-notes as a 
reminder.
