This works for me; if bash's arrays were easier to use they would be
better choice, but they are not. However, I would drop the word ALIAS
entirely, and just use:
for a single address, and
for multiple addresses. The word "alias" won't be in any of the
documentation on the system once ifconfig is not there any longer, and
it's somewhat redundant when you are supplying a list of addresses
enumerated in this fashion.
