There is an interface in pfinet.defs but I don't think it is supported at
the moment. There is only one interface anyway, so stopping and restarting
is an option.
There exists a patch for multiple interface support and route manipulation.
It's quite old, and will most likely not apply cleanly anymore, but I assume
it will be an issue for after 0.3 is released. People can already start to
think about the interface and possible implementations if they are
interested in this.
