It isn't always bound to DHCP: just now I am sitting at $WORK
and travelling via the building with WiFi and Ethernet -- I have
static IP and when I plug into wire -- I have wired setup, when
I am unplugged -- WiFi works here. But the magic of switching
is inside if_lagg, not in some external app that looks for events
and does the plumbing. And I like this way of doing things.

Looks like OSX does have the smart client that polls for the
interface events and configures network accordingly. I should
dig it a bit more, since I hadn't touched this part of OSX yet.
