I decided to run the command anyway, and got the following:
rob at ubuntu:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
 * Reconfiguring network
interfaces...                                          /etc/network/interfaces:23: duplicate interface
ifdown: couldn't read interfaces file "/etc/network/interfaces"
/etc/network/interfaces:23: duplicate interface
ifup: couldn't read interfaces file "/etc/network/interfaces"


I don't know how significant this is
