Are you going to be adding facilities to the kernel so that we can set
hardware-level addresses for an interface in the same way that we can
set higher-level addresses?
It would be nice to have user-land fail-over programs be able to take
over for another machine with `ifconfig le0 ethernet 8:0:20:12:34:56'
