    Ok. Good point.
    But remember that parsing /proc for an embedded system is also not the
    most healthy thing.

    ip is also a replacement of many nettools: ifconfig, route, arp config,
    tunneling setup etc. You can also do many funky things with it using
    small scripts (ip dup-address detection is documented).
    Seems like Alexey already has a wrapper "ifcfg" which is a ifconfig
    replacement. It does not format display the same way as ifconfig; however,
    that would only be necessary if some app is dependent on ifconfig output.
