dhcp client question.

I was following the blfs book and see that there are two dhcp client provided 
and one of them comes together with the dhcp server package (namely 
dhclient). However, I find no explanation or reason for not using the dhclient 
that came with the dhcpd. Though, I am very sure there is one or else the 
book will not have mention dhcpcd at all, nor will most distribution I have 
come across be using dhcpcd.

So my question is, apart from being a preference thing, why would 
someone choose dhcpcd over dhclient? Security? Ease of usage?
