Subject: Could you make vconfig less stupid?

vconfig prints bogus message, then autoloads the vlan module.
It is still living in 2.4 time warp.

# vconfig add dummy0 1
WARNING:  Could not open /proc/net/vlan/config.  Maybe you need to load the 8021q module, or maybe you are not using PROCFS??
Added VLAN with VID == 1 to IF -:dummy0:-

Other nuisance:
# vconfig --version
Expecting argc to be 3-5, inclusive.  Was: 2

1) users expect version
2) users don't expect argc related crap messages
