Hear, Hear !

Once upon a time -- maybe a couple of years ago -- before I started using
NetBSD, I was playing a little with FreeBSD. One of the beautiful things
about their installation procedure was that it prompted me for an initial
setup, including a network setup (which was then written to the
appropriate /etc/xxx files).

We may not get there with 1.3 for all ports, but this will help immensely
to get a larger fraction of the new installations configured properly.
