To claify, for IPV4 there are two ways to manage addresses:

  There is IPaddr, which uses the ifconfig method of aliases.
  This is the default for reasons that I will not go into,
  mainly because I think they are wrong.

  And there is IPaddr2, which uses the ip (iproute2) method
  as discussed in my previous email. Suffice to say, if you
  are using Linux I strongly recommend this approach. I also
  recommend using the ip command times instead of ifconfig and route.

There is also a separate script to handle IPV6, which is actually
C code, not a script. I have not played with this so I can't comment
on how it works internally.
