it also does not when using persistent.


The problem with persistent was renaming inside the same namespace that was not reliable. People were actually left with eth0_temp at times.

I would be happy with persistent renaming to different namespace like net0, net1, ..., but for some reasons people are too much in love with eth prefix and won't accept anything else.

Another consideration is that IMHO persistent renaming based on MAC is wrong in most cases and should have never been default. This is fixable again.

Predictable avoids both of these problems, so I prefer it over old implementation of persistent. And as it already avoids both of these problems there is not much appeal in reimplementing it again.
