You are right -- the code to change the IP address was removed some time
ago. I had forgotten. It happened when the various Unix kernels started
to diverge and the "standard" way of doing this evaporated.

We should rewrite this part of cfengine to palm this off the
ifconfig/ipconfig. That means we need to compile a list of
ifconfig syntaxes for different systems. We could then deal with
ipv6 at the same time.
