This would be great, but does have the danger that we end up having a
swathe of very similar scripts that have to be maintained together.

It was annoying that gentoo chose not to use ifup/down. I guess with the
various udev/hotplug versions we'll need vendor-specific ways of
addressing them too.

I guess the install script could also get the python packages in the
right place for the distro.
