On the other hand 4095 is reserved by 802.1Q...
VLAN Identifier (VID): a 12-bit field specifying the VLAN to which the 
frame belongs. The hexadecimal values of 0x000 and 0xFFF are reserved. 
All other values may be used as VLAN identifiers, allowing up to 4,094 
VLANs. The reserved value 0x000 indicates that the frame does not belong 
to any VLAN; in this case, the 802.1Q tag specifies only a priority and 
is referred to as a priority tag.

So maybe we should fix vconfig help?
