How is this different from messing with resolv.conf?  The sun
server/client has an interesting set of configurations for handling
what to send/receive.  (see dhcp_inittab(4))

I guess it'd be nice to give an option for enabling/disabling
everything is rfc2132 with like a -e(nable) ntp,lpr,foo -d(isable)
dns,bar and just document the defaults.  It would also be nice if the
dhcp client could append instead of replace (or replace it's only its
own stuff (<option id="added_by_dhcp"> foo </option>)  but then I
guess it would need to know a way to parse and modify (not just
create) each type of config file.
