Description of the change

Target should be updated once we have a name (and branch) for dd.

I think we're overdue to unseed net-tools in favor of iproute2.

+1 following a discussion with Andreas and Christian. We should release note this though, explaining that the package is still available, and perhaps provide mapping to the newer tools for common use cases.
