Hi Tom,

this file is read during the bootup procedure by
/etc/init.d/networking (/etc/rcS.d/S40networking).
This script only supports those three options, so
if you need to set other parameters, you should add
your echo line to that script (just after the three
doopt calls), or, if you feel like it, add support
for the options you need following the given design.
