I'm just curious what those issues are?
I know that if you for example use /etc/init.d/dhcpcd instead
of /etc/init.d/networking then you'll have your lo interface
unconfigured. (which I work around by having lo only in networking and
enable both services)
I also think that you may have the same issues in LXC for example,
unless you explicitly configure lo during boot. and LXC does not use
initramfs at all.
So I wonder if this is the correct place to fix it.
