I also would like to know!
My laptop is set to start wifi on boot. Sometimes I have to switch to
ethernet. I have noticed that if I set the ethernet interface to up and
plug a cable in, I have an IP on both interfaces (so i3status says).
For good measure I always set the wlan interface to down, but I'm always
curious as to what actually happens.
I wish I could elaborate more on my set up but I installed it a year ago,
it's worked ever since, so I honestly cannot remember what I am using.
