My thoughts exactly.  I actually implemented this here in my test lab
last night after I sent the email, albeit with an extra option


therefore: tap,,,my_tap_0,yes
or: tap,,,my_tap_0,no

I've made this backwards compatible too by the use of an option in the
netkit.conf file.  Once I have thoroughly tested it, I'll submit a patch
and you are free to use it if you think it would be a useful feature in

Thanks for your help.
