Some years ago when the release of sarge was supposed to be imminent
it was decided not to adopt dhcp3 as the default because there wouldn't be
enough time to adjust to it before the release.  Then the release was
delayed for a couple of years; meanwhile the maintainers of dhcp and dhcp3
have been busy with other things.
