Yes, together a large amount of rewriting in the network side.
The next release will use a centralized code to handle any kind
of network interfaces; pcmcia, ethernet, serial and parallel port.
The new network code can handle multiple-ethernet as well.
Setup should be only a frontend to new "net" script. It is, more-or-less,
a smart "ifconfig", with more parameters.

I chose the single_script_way because I wish a code able to run
in other mini systems where I'm experimenting multicasting and other
fun things.

The idea is to keep the code kernel-independent, using test like:

                case `uname -r` in

as far modules are concerned.


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
