Intentionally, to be able to ssh-in to the same name and IP from other
computers, not needing to remember/know which interface is the lappy
using this time.

Again, not necessary with Linux.  Configure different addresses for
Ethernet and WiFi, then work with the WiFi address, even when Ethernet
is connected.  That's all you need to do.  Give it a try and see what
happens.  You're trying to solve a problem that doesn't exist.

Also, by insisting on using the same address for both interfaces, you're
ruling out using DHCP.
