Comment (by alexander at linuxfromscratch.org):

 IMHO the discussion in this ticket became too diverged. Some people (e.g.
 Bryan Kadzban) try to formulate the problem (with words other than "jhalfs
 broke") and the goals. Other people (e.g., LydianKnight) present solutions
 to their own understanding of the problem, which may or may not be the
 same as, e.g., my understanding.

 My idea is that the problem of configuring the network interfaces (i.e.,
 getting the correct udev rules and writing the corresponding interface
 configuration files) '''has multiple solutions'''. One of them is to defer
 the configuration until the reboot (that's simple but doesn't work with
 the important case of remote installations), another is to write udev
 rules by hand or by script or even by copying from a suitable host (this
 is a bit more complicated to get right, and is overkill in most of cases).
 The book should not present only one of the methods (that would not be
 educational enough), but must present the goal, include an overview of
 '''some''' available methods to reach it, and provide some means to verify
 that it has been in fact reached.
