I would use the "instance" keyword and spawn a separate ifplugd job
for each device.
It could be triggered by udev events.
Add a udev rule like:
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", RUN+="/sbin/initctl emit
network-device-added %k -eDEVNAME=%k"
SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="remove", RUN+="/sbin/initctl emit
network-device-removed %k -eDEVNAME=%k"
and the upstart job could look like:
start on network-device-added
stop on network-device-removed
stop on shutdown
exec ifplugd $1
I haven't actually tested this, but I guess you get the idea.
Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
