Well if I were on a network with dhcp but did not want to use dhcp, I
might want to boot at medium priority and pick static config. Of course
a combined dhcp+manual configurator could simply ask at medium priority
before using dhcp with the same effect.

I have no strong preferences, I just know the current dhcp stuff is
annoying to a lot of users based on install reports.
