Noo-oo, I firmly believe they're smoking it.
In addition to Fungi4All's solution, there's also ifrename (in package

Ifrename is a tool allowing you to assign a consistent name to each of
your network interfaces.
But Fungi4All's solution is so easy to use that I'm won over, and
have implemented it here.
