#804 new enhancement

"ifconfig" should support :x notion

The "ifconfig" command should allow merging different interfaces with the same base name, as well as creating additional interfaces for a specific base via the ":x" notion. Ie. if the first interface is "loop0" (with base "loop0"), it could also be addressed (in ifconfig only) via "loop0:0". The second interface with base "loop0" will be called "loop0:1", and so on.

Do we really need if aliases ? I know BONE supports them but it's a bit buggy and I as probably the only one to ever use, hmm, try it.

I would think yes, because it's needed to have two IP adresses on one interface.
