Time to phase out net-tools?


After reading that Bernd orphaned net-tools I decided to share this
feeling I have since some time ago.

Net-tools has been very useful for us during all this years, but we
have a much more powerful and clean tool since years ago: iproute.
Maybe it's time for us to drop net-tools altogether and just write the
compatibility scripts as iproute wrappers? I think that the iproute
manual even has some sample scripts that do exactly this.

What do you think?
