FreeBSD equivalent of ifup/ifdown

Does anyone know of an equivalent under FreeBSD of the Linux ifup / ifdown 
scripts to stop and start network interfaces?  I know of /etc/rc.d/netif, 
but that's a bit brutal if you only want to stop/start one interface 
(especially if you're connected on the other).

I am of course aware that I can do it 'by hand' with ifconfig, but I feel 
safer if I use scripts that refer to the config, that way I know what the 
machine will use when it reboots.
