The state file solution was not perfect either. If you have two brands
of NIC (Intel 10G additional NIC and Broadcom 1G integrated NIC for
example), it was not uncommon to be left with an interface eth0_rename
after boot because the target name was used by the other driver.
Each module should do one thing well.
