When we are talking about IPv4, then it's probably right to tell that having
multiple IPs on a single interface isn't a very common setup. But for IPv6,
that's another story! It's very common to setup more than one IP per iface
with IPv6. And yes, we should consider IPv6 as important.
Just for the record, ifconfig seems to display multiple IPv6 addresses
$ ifconfig eth0
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:30:48:87:0d:fa
inet addr:126.96.36.199 Bcast:188.8.131.52
inet6 addr: 2607:f748:1200:f9::4:1/64 Scope:Global
inet6 addr: 2607:f748:1200:f9::5:f/64 Scope:Global
inet6 addr: 2607:f748:1200:f9::2:f/64 Scope:Global
inet6 addr: 2607:f748:1200:f9::a:1/64 Scope:Global
This ifconfig hiding of extra addresses appears to be an IPv4-only problem.
