May I suggest to use the same version number as busybox?

I like very much this idea, which to some extents I would like to see
implemented for another busybox binary, udhcpc (which should probably
generate from the very same source package).

This because the udhcpc package contains is a duplication of code
already included in busybox and nowadays that busybox provides the
udhcpc binary I do not see the reason for an external package.  The same
applies to the udhcpd package.

Thx, bye,
