Standard behavior, for years, has been to expect eth0 to be assigned to
a machine's primary network interface.  udev's behavior is more than a
little counter-intuitive, and not well publicized or documented.  You
don't really expect to replace a network card and suddenly have your
machine not be able to find the network.

Well, it was covered pretty well in the release notes for Lenny. It is
always a good idea to read the release notes for a new release previous to
upgrading. Because I read them, it wasn't as surprising to me and I found
the documentation sufficient. That was my experience.
That doesn't necessarily make it a good design.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice, there is.   .... Yogi Berra
