Device IP Nesting (For devices with multiple interfaces)

A feature I would like to see in all versions of Fing would be device nesting of some sort for devices that have multiple interfaces on the same network. Those interfaces would have unique MAQ addresses and may both receive IP Addresses. 
This happens mostly for devices that are connected both wireless and wired, but also for Access Points, servers, and some other items here or there (like my son's box one that is wired but still connects to wireless now and then for no particular reason).

    @Robin I think @DavidF's suggestion is simply a variation of the "Merge multiple MAC-addresses to one device" idea, which does have 13 upvotes thus far.

    On the subject of merging, I was poking on Vanilla's website. They apparently have a "merge" function to combine similar discussions.  I thnk a consolidated view would do wonders for judging true feature demand and would make for a much less cluttered Fing Community.

    Yes, we are aware of the Merge feature and every now and then I use it to merge the similar posts together to keep the information under.

    Would like to also be able to automatically nest devices with randomized mac addresses. My laptop changes mac address at every boot, which just spams my device list with hundreds of devices with the same name.
