whereami works but it is harder to configure than ifscout
and (more seriousl) is incompatible with ifupdown, the
standard network-interface management package.

Please note that the features of ifscout are in the process
of being integrated into guessnet by the intrepid Enrico
Zini.  The work is not yet complete; the guessnet release in
sid (0.21) is broken and lacks some important features.
However, once the work is done, guessnet will work like 
ifscout, only faster.  :)
