I haven't looked at gif(4) so far, but I can imagine, that this would make
sense. Also I beleive, that gre is not that heavily used, that a interface
change could still be done. Perhaps with a big warning out of ifconfig if
the old syntax is used or such in addition to release notes etc.

Yes. Originally I only wanted it done with greconfig and no ifconfig
