Right, I'm completely happy with the current behavior.  I have no
objections to the change.  I just also don't particularly care; I've
stopped using ifupdown and am using *.link units for network
configuration, which makes all of this trivial and uninteresting and means
I don't care in the slightest what names are assigned to interfaces.
