Yes. In /etc/network/interfaces, there are "auto" lines. Comment them
out all, except one - "auto lo". This one must be there all the time.

Yes. Kernel initializes devices, and init is bringing up services wich
start networking, printing, etc... You just have to configure how do you
like your networking (commenting out "auto" lines).

Breezy will have very good support for things like this.

Sure it does. You aren't the first one that thinks Ubuntu networking
could be better. That's why there are big improvments in Breezy. Breey
will rock, once it becames usable :)
