Glad to hear that.

I mean, from a certain perspective I can understand that you don't know
to know whether or not a particular interface is an Intel card or a 3Com
card and both should just be named ethN, for example.  But it always
made sense in my mind, at least, to differentiate on the interface name
level between the different vendors to know which card you are messing
