Not really mandatory ;-)

On my system my "/etc/network/interfaces" only contains the entry for
the loopback interfaces.

Everything else is handled by a script which asks for a
"roaming-profile" and executes some commands to configure the interfaces
as needed. Every profile consists of some config files. Those configs
usually contain commands like "ifconfig/iwconfig/route" etc., nothing

Its a new script i wrote last week in a couple of hours because i needed
a soulution for some kind of "roaming". It is quich/dirty but till now
it works for me.

Actually this is similar to "http://etcnet.org/" but much more
