Description

It's 2012 and high time for ifconfig without arguments to default to the same behaviour that every other modern UNIX platform exhibits. That is: ifconfig should print a list of all interfaces as if the user had typed ifconfig -a.

This change will not alter any other existing behaviour, including preserving the behaviour of -a without other arguments. It will bring us into line with at least the following other platforms: OpenBSD, Mac OS X, Linux.
