Which means that your network interface wouldn't come up automatically when

solution in that respect. :)

Seems to me udev is only tangentially related to this discussion and
what some people in this thread actually want is wildcards for
interfaces (* or eth* or wlan* or whatever) in
/etc/network/interfaces. Or alternatively some other flexibility in
which interfaces to use, hopefully netconf will be ready to do that
and replace ifupdown for lenny.

I missed such a feature a lot when I was travelling through Asia with
only an external USB hard drive with Debian on it and booting it from
people's laptops (with wireless) and internet cafe computers.
