No, that's not the way to go.
It would break the remote plugin for kernel 2.4.

The way kernel 2.6.x is being developed is a pain in the a**. :§$%
They are changing interfaces at will, and it is virtually impossible to
write drivers for the 2.6 series...

I will not look into this before 2.6.15 is out.
For now you should specify the interface with the '-i' option.
