[Wheeler, John] 
I've always wanted to monkey with the "interfaces" directive. It doesn't
appear that this function updates the relevant file necessary to survive
reboot. I didn't want to have configuration information in multiple
places like ifcfg-eth0 as well as embedded in my config files so I chose
to forgo its usage optimizing on data normalization instead.

Does anyone use this?
