Is not the same true for DHCP ?

I don't see how we can get this kind of support without ppp and dhcp
support... The two would be very similiar (the potential to get the
same address, or a new one).

It would take some thought to handle all the possibilities properly
but the end result would be *very* nice.  I've tried a few times,
and wound up with scripts in ppp, dhcp, and network - all modelled
similiar to the DHCP state management.
