Sure, but I was only going at the --dhcp option.  When I first saw it, I
thought it was a convenience option for users.  However, as I understand
it, you can set pfinet to with your patch without using --dhcp,
and as this is hidden in some script, there is no use in calling it
--dhcp if you can call it -a [...] just as well.  And I believe this
(perhaps from another angle) this is Roland's criticism as well.

Your patch is very useful of course, I just think we do not need an
explicit --dhcp function but rather should make -a [...] work
equivalently (if this is not already the case) and use that in scripts.
