This prompts me to mention about the debian-net-admin mailing list,
where are the people who are effectively actively maintaining ifupdown
at the moment (and who make the ifupdown NMUs).

Thomas Hood and others have now (AFAIK) moved the ifupdown state into
tmpfs if tmpfs is found, which goes a bit in the direction of that
TODO item.

People wanting to get involved in ifupdown development should somehow
get in touch with that list.  I'm not sure if it's invitation only�I
can't find mentions about the list on the web), but I'm on it because of
guessnet, and I can ask if someone is interested.
