One idea I had was adding some sort of profile support to netif.

# Network profiles:
netprofile_list="HomeWired HomeWifi"

With netprofile_enable set it would cycle through the profile list
stopping with the first that succeeded.  Additionally you could do
`/etc/rc.d/netif action profile` to start up the interfaces associated
with a particular profile.  I wanted to do this since I have home wired
and wifi and work wired and wifi I use my laptop with.  I got distracted
so I stopped looking at the idea.
