Is there any particular reason you need the alias interface itself?  It's
pretty easy to set multiple IPv4 addresses on a single interface:

ip addr add a.b.c.d/e dev eth0 <other options>
ip addr add f.g.h.i/j dev eth0 <other options>

Likewise not necessarily supported in the book scripts, but it might be easier
than trying to set up an entirely different interface...
