My bad, I should have said that I wanted to get this info
programmaticly.*I* know which is which, but I don't want to configure
my scripts to know.

However, as you say system-config-network lists the hardware, so
having spent some quality time with a python debugger, the following
gives me what I need:

$ python -c 'import kudzu; print kudzu.probe(kudzu.CLASS_NETWORK,
kudzu.BUS_UNSPEC,kudzu.PROBE_SAFE)'
