[PVE-User] Feature request: description of network interfaces in proxmox web GUI

I would like to request a feature to add support for associating a
descriptive text to interfaces configured via proxmox web GUI. For me,
the use case for this would be that it would simplify keeping track of
what vlan-id/name each vmbrX is associated with.

Perhaps this metadata information could be stored along the interface
definition in /etc/network/interfaces as something like the following:

auto vmbr1
iface vmbr1 inet manual
        bridge_ports bond0.151
        bridge_stp off
        bridge_fd 0
        name vlan151-lab-network

(I would not know if the name directive interferes with something else
in Debian networking, but I have not seen any issues so far)


Best regards
