Apologies for the rant mode:

# mii-tool 
eth0: negotiated 100baseTx-FD flow-control, link ok

# ethtool 
ethtool: bad command line argument(s)
For more information run ethtool -h

# ethtool -h | grep '   ethtool' | grep -v DEVNAME
        ethtool -h|--help 		Show this help
        ethtool --version 		Show version number

So no, it's not a simple replacement.

While I'm in rant mode, note that there's no programmable bash
completion for the subcommands of ip. I wasn't aware of ip neigh.
