	A virtual interface is not really a virtual interface.  A
virtual interface acts as a second ip/mask bound to the network card.  

	Anyway, all traffic is logged on the standard interface, as
the eth0:0 setup is just another name for the real interfaces second

	One might be able to work some magic with accounting rules
based on -s and -d addresses, but not the -i <interface> flag.

As folks might have suspected, not much survives except roaches, 
and they don't carry large enough packets fast enough...
