Sounds good.

This is a nice thing to do ;-), but it’s obviously not really needed for
the DHCP work itself.

I guess the CLI will be very similar to ‘dhclient’, so I would recommend
not spending too much time on it at the beginning.

I think the crux will instead be API design, basically refining what you
describe in the proposal under the “May 25 - May 31” heading.  A good
idea would be to write a hypothetical ‘main’ procedure of a DHCP client
program that would use the DHCP module.
