[Setup-tool-hackers] fun networking stuff

So, there are some fun things in the network front end.

For reference:


What I'd like to discuss is how the activate / deactivate is going to work.

There are a few options:

1.  Do nothing until apply in the main window
2.  Call network-conf --activate eth0 without applying changes
3.  Call network-conf --activate eth0, applying all changes first
4.  Prompt the user, requiring that all changes get applied before activating the interface

I am not sure what the right thing to do is yet.  I am leaning towards 4, though.

I probably would like to also have something similar for dhcp/bootp configuration, to pump the interface.
