It would seem that watching for a specified device such as eth0 would be
the better solution. There is the case where I might want to specify the
local machine as its IP Masq 192.168.1.1 instead of the new DHCP IP for
the real network in the /etc/hosts file.
I suppose I should be updating the interfaces line in my smb.conf in that
case each time the IP changes.

I have submitted it.
