It isn't documented (perhaps in the literate source), but ifupdown
supports tagged interfaces transparently.  If you want an ethernet
interfaces on VLAN 5, this will do the trick:

iface iface.X inet ...

When you bring this up, ifupdown will look for an interface named
"iface.X", and if it fails to find one, will create a new link, using
VLAN ID X on iface, and name it "iface.X".  Depending on what you want,
you might be able to get close by combining that with NM's ifupdown
managed mode.
