okay, that's possible to do, but not coded.
How would you like to specify this?   Yes, it could be specified on the
command line, but that isn't that flexible.  Would you want to announce
any address that matched some CIDR (which you'd put on the command line),

Do you want the RPL node to auto-configure an address from the PIO?
At present this can't be turned off, but that certainly could be made an option.

You should be able to do that now with multiple -i options.

So, how would you want to enable/disable RPL on a particular interface?
What kind of interface would you want?  I plan to integrate with
quagga/zebrad at some point, but it's not a priority.

That it already does.
