This script does not require the enable knob.  If the static_arp_pairs
is not empty then the script would add the entries, otherwise it will
not do that.  Do you think we need an "enable" knob for it?  I can add
it but I don't feel strongly for the idea, since it would make a
redundant entry to represent the same semantic.
