Oh, duh.  You're right, this would work.

I would say that it's easier for me to remember ip's syntax: there
aren't tons of options, for instance.  I think it's just inertia.

(I didn't use iproute2 for a while, myself, even after the book started
installing it.  But once I started using it, it got a lot easier than I
remember ifconfig being.)
