Yeah, I thought about that, but it appears as though finish-install wants to
own all those sorts of things itself. I would have expected
50config-target-network to be in netcfg, but it's not. On the other hand,
if that's more of a historical screwup, moving it (and the
currently-hypothetical release-dhcp-lease) to netcfg isn't something I'm
philosophically opposed to).
