Well, it is possible to have as many interfaces as you want without the
need of overriding the Owl default networking startup; furthermore, 'setup'
and 'settle' are able to configure as many interfaces as you wish, both
physical cards and aliases.  I recall several years ago Solar was impressed
that, after he started (remotely) a new machine, configured two ethernets,
and the 'settle' picked the configuration of them both when the time came.

However, I perfectly understand you: more automation always means less
flexibility.
