/etc/netstart can parse /etc/ifaliases and $ifaliases_ifname.
The parsing code in /etc/netstart is hardcoded to IPv4 (I mean,
use of "inet"). Isn't it more correct to let user specify the address
family portion? I would like to allow "inet6" at least.
It would be nice if we can say "prefixlen" instead of "netmask".
I admit there will be backward compatibility issue in
$ifaliases_ifname case (because it chops the string into tokens
and use every two pairs as argument). Let me know this should be
modified. $ifaliases6_ifname is not nice...
