I don't know that it matters which one we use, as long as we're
consistent and clear about how to use it correctly.  FreedomBox-Setup
can now tell how many wired and wireless interfaces are available and
configure the networking setup appropriately (sbin/interface_detect.py

It's easy enough to get a reasonable first-boot networking configuration
in FBX-Setup, but I don't know how we should handle configuring the
network for the live system.  Regardless, we should now have enough
information to be able to make those decisions [1].

Also, I experimented with making interface_detect as easy to understand
as possible, so I put it together in org mode and exported it a few
different ways [2].  If you find the python script or the exported
source easier to read, please let me know.
