[mrtg] IfName and MPLS interfaces

In general, we use ifName to identify interfaces monitored by mrtg.
However, on MPLS PE or P routers, there are two instances with the same
ifName one with ifType 6 for the physical characteristics, and one with
ifType 166 for the MPLS counters. Without a lot of hacking to ignore ifType
166 interfaces, I think I¹ll need to come up with another way to identify
Cfgmaker doesn¹t appear to have any sort of fallback to change ifref if the
criteria specified by ifref is unavailable. I tried a bunch of ways to
work around it, but short of creating a new configuration option, it¹s
pretty insistent on not allowing it.
Would anyone find that a useful option for cfgmaker? Perhaps a name like
ifref2? I imagine for consistency I would also need --ifdesc2....
