Just one officially supported?  How about boxes with 2 nics acting as
routers or gateways?  It sounds to me a bit limited...  netcfg is
there but it's not the default, and most arch wiki documentation show
a way without netcfg, :-)  Perhaps time to change the arch wikies when
the change take place, :-)

Did I misunderstand the statement?
