I like this idea.  Here's how I imagine it:

1. Set the default values of the interfaces to an empty string or nil
2. If unset during enwc-setup, use ip or ifconfig (or other customizable 
program) to determine the available interfaces and prompt the user for each one

It's probably possible to automate it more, but I don't see much benefit.  In 
all likelihood, it'd be easier and more accurate to collect the interfaces and 
present them to the user for selection.

What do you think?

Reproduced.  This is an issue with tabulated-list-mode.  I'll see what I can do.
