I'd rather have breakage in this case than having to look for the
interface every fscking time I need to run tcpdump, or having to adapt
to an entirely new name schema like lanc0 and lanw0 to not stomp in
the kernel's name space when using my own naming scheme.

My finger memory will still type tcpdump -i eth0 before the brain can
intervene ten years from now.
