I'm trying to figure out why it'd be necessary to do this.  We already
have the previous configuration of every interface stuffed away in /run,
and we use that when deciding which service scripts to call when
bringing down networking.  Doesn't that kill the pppd / pppoe / dhclient
/ dhcpcd / whatever daemons already?  And doesn't that remove the IPs
that were configured already, for static?
