network config feature (please export /etc/network/interfaces.d to writable)

Bug Description

At the moment /etc/network/interfaces.d/ is read-only, and eth0 only works with
dhcp server.

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

However I would like to setup static ip address to eth0 via cloud-init or any
like so.

Please to export /etc/network/interfaces.d as writable, or symbolic link this
directory to /writable/interfaces.d.

cloud-init sounds like valid idea to look into.

middleware/service options we should check out:

 1. ifupdown - oldschool debian style
 2. systemd-network -
 3. NM - probably not really wanted for server style networking
 4. ... others like connman etc.

FYI, cloud-init does not support network config yet?
