i.e., in using if_unit & if_name, one might assume that "le" #0 and "le" #1
are somehow related.
who cares if they are related ? "Maybe I'm Missing Something ..."
The implication of "if_xname" is that the number for the interface is
not needed to indentify an interface, an interesting concept but is it
really that much of a problem that we want to make portability of
applications that much harder ? (any programs like netstat will have to be
altered to deal with this, for example).
what does it matter what the interface is called ?
