[Request]rewrite rc.inet with iproute2?

i have no complaint on net-tool but iproute2 is soo easily understandable, relative speaking, net-tool is ambiguous

I always liked the OpenBSD /etc/hostname.<iface> approach myself.

The problem is that iproute2 uses CIDR notation when you give it an IP address and the current setup uses IP + netmask.

Seems easy enough but it means you also need to fix netconfig as well.

And the question when you fix netconfig is do we switch user input to CIDR or do we keep the input the same and convert it.

Of course all of this actually achieves nothing great other than been able to say we're keeping up with the Jones' so getting Pat to even consider it without giving him both rc.inet1 and netconfig is extremely remote.
