Quickly creating VLANs?

Works for me, but if you put in the 'inet' if breaks.
# ifconfig vlan600 create vlan 600 vlandev fxp1 inet 10.20.0.1/24
ifconfig: inet: bad value
Since an interface can receive transmissions in differing
protocols with different naming schemes, specifying the
address family is recommended.
either needs to be revised to:
except when creating a vlan, 'cause that causes sh*t to break
or, the ifconfig command needs to accept 'inet' when creating a vlan.
Is inet inherited from the 'vlandev' and therefore redundant?
