Oups, I misread :/
Then my answer is "we didn't even released 2, so let's keep discussion
about 3 for later"
( seriously, it didn't even occurs to me that we would start discussing
3 right now )
Personnaly, I think that would be good to have something better than
current initscripts and shell based approach for managing network
( since we already manage the network with ifplugd, having a daemon is
not a so big problem, and I am sure we could have a mode where the
daemon apply the configuration and then disappear, if that make people
less nervous ). But I would really make sure that people agree with the
change. I would rather avoid having the same type of discussion than on
