For completeness, I'm attaching the final draft of my proposal - the
one you see in the mailing list was really incomplete.

Nothing for now. Thank you for the introduction :)

Also, how do you suggest I get started with the pre-coding period? I
was thinking of rereading the ISC dhclient code, this time more
carefully, and in parallel, adding some packages to the Guix to get a
feel for how porting packages to the archive works. Once I'm done
reading dhclient, I could start on designing the CLI. Is this fine or
do you think an alternate plan of action would be better?
