OpenRC's netifrc module

Hi all :-)

OpenRC provides a nice method of configuring the network, which is esp. very convenient for wired setups, through the netifrc module. One can setup all kinds of network connections (including bridges etc.) – no need for any daemon to run. Just add few lines to in /etc/conf.d/net, create a symlink from /etc/init.d/net.lo to e.g. eth0, add it to the default runlevel and you're done.

But: On Devuan, there's neither /etc/conf.d, nor /etc/init.d/net.lo. So: Is this supported and/or intended to be used on Devuan?

Thanks for all information about this!
