Whilst I can see the logic from the kernel side, I can't really
understand why the functionality was removed from axparms - a
little change in there would have 'hidden' the kernel interface
change from users. I don't mean hidden in a sinister sense btw :-)
I would argue that a user of networking software should be able
to change standard runtime parameters simply and the axparms
program seemed like a nice, generic configuring tool complete
with manual.
