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. -- Croco
