Would it make sense to add automatic ethernet frame type recognition?

It's trivial on input and not realy complicated on output. For output
you need to store a flage describing the frame type somewhere, e.g.
the arpcom part of the interface softc structure where it could be
auto-enabled or controled via a new ifconfig option.

Next step would be IPX routing ;-}
