Yep.... which one are you going to consider the "canonical" one? Plural
or singular?

As said, that probably depends on whether you accept more servers per
I guess that would be better.

Perhaps you should also ask the ifupdown people what they're going to

Especially for the "address" keyword a version that supports more
addresses per line would be reasonable... and I guess the concepts
should be kept more or less sync on all the /e/n/interfaces keywords.
