Well, it seems pretty calm, and hasn't tried to cut itself yet... But
I think I can adapt.

Could I mimic this in RC.conf? Or is this saved between restarts?

Also, for the bridge, could I do this, correct?

#existing rc.conf
ifconfig_re0="inet netmask"
ifconfig_re0_alias0=" netmask"
#adding... Should I use an IP not aliased by re0?
ifconfig_bridge0="inet netmask"

Thanks for your help,
