Network try before committing, and better editing support

Hello folks.

I had some problems with my network, and I thought it would be awesome if I had two features, so I'm leaving a suggestion.

- Make a trial configuration before making it permanent.
I couldn't find anything related to this, but having something like a try button, that will apply the configuration, but will revert back to the original configuration after some time would be great.​
This could be a life saver if I made some mistake and lost access to the server, especially if it is in a remote location.​

- Have better editing support.
I know that having the best network editor is not the main focus, but even something simple like edit the diff file shown below the interfaces before applying, or edit the /etc/network/interfaces via the gui AND having the try condition would be really awesome, and so much painless to test and debug the network.​
