You cut out the part of my email where I quoted the changelog showing
that had already been done.
The net-tools package should be included anyway (although maybe without
mii-tool), as it includes commonly used tools like ifconfig, arp, route,
hostname, netstat, etc. Even if some of those commands are obsoleted by
ip, they are pretty much required for compatiblity. net-tools also has
ether-wake for sending wake-on-LAN packets.
