I don't think so. That's the name returned by the OS, I think.

On linux, you get eth0, eth1 etc. for you ethernet adapters, ppp0,
etc. for PPP connections, lo0 etc. for local loopback. There could
be others, and I assume the name is given by the kernel (i.e. the
module handling the interface).

Dunno if it's really RT. On unix at least it is not; on Windows
maybe the name is given by REBOL, or maybe the OS gives them names
too; anyone knows?
