that not something that could not be changed. how you style the output can be a
different topic and of course, can be done better than Linux's IP command.

??? LOL ... i do not see a problem there as well. of course, on Linux only IP
be used and ifconfig on Linux is unusable in some cases, but that's not an
so i agree on that point that it should be styled better than linux does, but
other topics i do not see a difference. ifconfig on BSD's are mess nowadays too.
or are you wanting to sell me that FreeBSD's way to configure wlans is cool?
