netstat in /etc/daily use -inv, it's not cool to read 'Ipkts Ierrs   
Opkts Oerrs Colls' when there is ipv6 address because it's no longer
i have seen a conversation about this in 2000 on this list, i have not
read all mail but i guess that there is 3 type of users: one who only
want to check for 'Ipkts Ierrs    Opkts Oerrs Colls', one who need to
see address/network change, and one who wants both ;)

so why do not to add a checkyesno to do something like

        echo "network:"  
        if checkyesno verbose_network; then 
               netstat -inv
               netstat -in
        echo ""
