ok, fair enough. But I've *NEVER* used the "ip add dev" command syntax.  
And I would hazard pretty much nobody else has either.

There are a skillion shell scripts for KVM/QEMU, Xen, embedded firewalls,  
etc. that use 'vconfig' because that's how it's been done for ages. Sure,  
we'd like everybody to go back and rewrite their scripts but I don't see  
that happening any time soon.
