dhcp-client package in sarge

Hi List!

Is it for a special reason that the default dhcp-client
in sarge is ancient (version 2.0pl5)?

This client does not follow the RFC correctly. When
it does a dhcpdiscover and the interface has been
previously configured with some ip address it is still
using that ip for the dhcpdiscover. This causes the
dhcp server (3.0.2) on my network to abandon that ip address.

The 3.x series has been released nearly 4 years ago,
why not make it the default?
