I'm interested in knowing whether or not you did try instantiating the
aliases, and if so whether there were any actual problems in handling
them (I understand that doing the instantiation with 'ifconfig'
invocations could be painful, but that's something which might be
sufficiently mitigated by coding the loop in C inside ifconfig itself).
