 Replying to [comment:31 alexander at linuxfromscratch.org]:
 > 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'''.

 Yes, certainly.

 > 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.

 At the risk of harping on a bad solution, "or just use udevtest".  :-P

 Although actually, I do think that even if we do go with udevtest, it'd
 still be a good idea to present the goal (as you say) and say "this
 section explains how we recommend achieving this goal, but there are
 alternate solutions; see XXXX and YYYY".  Those can be hints, or in-book
 paragraphs (of course then the sentence structure would change), or
 whatever.  They could even be (in the future) alternate book renderings
 based on the user's choice, though we don't have the infrastructure for
 that yet.

 And if we don't go with udevtest, then that kind of explanation should
 still certainly be there, yes.
