If auto is that much simpler, let's just go with that.

The issue isn't that eth0/eth1 are mislabeled on the DreamPlug, but
that they're entirely missing on the RaspberryPi.  In my built images,
/etc/network/interfaces has these contents:

: auto lo
: iface lo inet loopback

And that's it.  eth0 is missing from my built RPi images.  If other
folks have different results and I need to pull changes into my
fbx-setup fork, that's fine, but either way that needs to be corrected
before we call this a release.
