 This ticket came as an offshoot of GNOME Bugzilla ticket 624299
 (https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=624299), specifally, our
 (Millan, the lead Gnome System Tools developer, and me) plans to fix the
 currently broken networking support. One of the ideas was to unify the
 service configuration files for dhclient and dhcpcd, but that would
 require some changes to the book.

 And so, this ticket was made. This should be a trival change to the book,
 and it would make life easier for us. Just use /etc/sysconfig/network-
 devices/ifconfig.#iface#/dhcp as the configuration file for both services.

 This will make it so that dhclient and dhcpcd can no longer be installed
 together, but I don't really think that you should normally install them
 both.
