I actually wrote a basic ifconfig module, although it's probably not
as thorough as it could be...

Personally, I find C more fun/easier to work with at this level.

Hopefully, I will be able to release my work soon, and then people can
vote with their feet.  I have what I need, so I will make sure it
keeps working and doing what I want.
