I assume by now you've seen that you broke the
ATF test by making that change.

This isn't necessarily the wrong thing to do, but it needs to be
phased in, people need time to adjust their configs, rather than
having vether introduced one day and the same, or next day, their
bridge+tap (the way it has always been explained to config things
to avoid the local connection to the bridge losing its addr if the
addr is config'd on a physical link, and that link goes down).


ps: I really don't believe that the occasional chat with whoever
happens to be paying attention of irc/icb at the time counts as
any kind of real discussion - send proposed changes that will
affect people to the mailing lists.
