Hi Jouke,

I don't use netcfg, so sorry if these questions are stupid:

Does this mean that the old config will stop working?

Does this mean that things will stop working for people who don't
update their config?

If at all possible, it is usually for the best if we let old configs
continue to work, but remove their documentation and print warnings
when they are used (but maybe that's what you have done :-) ). As a
comparison, the old network syntax in rc.conf still works, even though
we complain when it is used.
