I have read it before but thanks for the hint. What I am afraid is that
all 'post-up rules I will put in interfaces.tail will be executed only
for last interface listed in /etc/interfaces. Is it OK if i put routing
rules for all interfaces into the last one?

Ah, that easy? Thank you for hint :) However I noticed that using veth
requires dedicated eth interface (am I wrong?), which I cannot afford -
I need to share NICs for few guests.
