You are right, the integration with ifupdown is not yet perfect, and there
isn't good support for using network mappings; it is on the todo list.  I
use ipconfig calls from within whereami.conf for the network where an ip
address is not assigned automatically:

+home ifconfig eth0
+home route del default
+home route add default gw
