Whatever works best in the use case, of course, but from "man ifrename":
"Ifrename must be run before interfaces are brought up, which is why
it's mostly useful in various scripts (init, hotplug) but is seldom used
directly by the user."
Sounds like mdev will be worth a look once it matures a bit. (Will have
to try to remember.)
