Hi,

I assume that this is just an implementation issue - and in that case,
would indeed second Mikael's complaints :-) - having a sticky address
on the router to talk to, no matter which interface happens to be up or
down just now, and have interfaces that keep their subnet for the 
"easy" things ("user unplugs and replugs his laptop") that do not
require persistant storage would certainly be appreciated.
