    No.

    Ditto.


    Actually; Ethernet badly needs something like this too. I would kill
    to be able to do something like:

    ifconfig eth0 speed 100 duplex full

    o across different networks cards -- I've been thinking about it of
    late as I had to battle with this earlier this week; depending on
    what network card you use, you need different magic incarnations to
    do the above.

    A standard interface is really needed; unless anyone objects I may
    look at drafting something up -- but it will require some input if it
    is not to look completely Ethernet centric.
