One way is to stop using the long-deprecated interface aliases and
instead add secondary addresses to the single interface:
iface eth0 inet dhcp
up ip addr add W.X.Y.Z/N dev $IFACE
down ip addr del W.X.Y.Z/N dev $IFACE
That way, you can let ifplugd start eth0, and the above commands will
add/remove the additional IP address you had set up on eth0:0
The ip(8) command is in the iproute package.
