You can always put them in (temporary) files:-)

Oh so close and yet so far.

I have given the man-page for net-update a closer reading and now realize that I can use a terporary file and that scratch one of my itches. As I read through that documentation I saw the --parent-index which allows you to select which <ip> definition you are changing. Oh boy, this looks good. I can use that to select if I am updating the ipv4 or ipv6 specification. Sounds good! Too bad it does not work that way. You check the family and if it is not ipv4, you quit.

Going with a minimum change, I propose changing that test to allow ipv4 or ipv6.

BTW, there seem to be a number of things that do not work in net-update. Aside from dns-host, is there anything else that is not there yet?

Also, I am updating and re-basing my patches against v1.0.0-rc2. Is that a good choice for now?
