Comment (by bdubbs at linuxfromscratch.org):

 Will this method work for wifi network connections?  I think there may be
 a lot of variation here in how this is handled.  In my case, I created a
 script that links and establishes ath0 and then run a process to give the
 interface an ip address (fixed or dhcp).  Its hard to determine in advance
 how someone will use a wifi connection.  Perhaps a general discussion in
 the configuration section giving exaples of various options would be
 appropriate.
