Actually, more useful would be integrating it into a configuration
profiles setup. Move to a different location, change the network
profile to reflect the setup you need at that location. That would
give you the persistence you're looking for.
Unfortunately, I don't know of anyone who's doing this (conf profiles).
Anyone? I was gonna work on that parallel to my cpu governor.
