Comment(by dj@…):

 When completed, there should be nothing keeping you from _installing_
 both, you simply cannot use both at the same time.  There are cases,
 although they can be argued to death, for which having both dhcp clients
 available makes sense IMO.

 The network service scripts (or script as the proposal indicates) can be
 updated to account for a single file, however, *we* will have to make NM
 aware of it.  If Milan would like to assist, his support would be much
 appreciated.  Keep in mind that there is still the proposal of LSB
 bootscripts, so perhaps we should take a serious look at other LSB
 compliant distros' examples. Maybe something that is already in place
 would make a good fit, or at least minimize the changes needed to NM.
 Keep in mind that I'm not suggesting that you abort your current path,
 just to look at all options.

 Do you have an example of changes required for the existing scripts?
