    We debated this issue on this mailing list for a long time. The consensus was that
    we would invoke external "distro" specific scripts for both configuring the interface
    as well as gathering information that could not be gathered in a distro independent
    fashion. That is what I have implemented here. This code specifies the interface to this
    external script. If these external scripts are not there, it is not fatal - on the SET side,
    the interface will not be configured and on the get side some attributes that are to be
    gathered via these external scripts will not be collected.
