But this was the exact same response I got to my suggestion that we
drop dhclient for the 6.0 release.  How do we know we won't go around
on this again when it's time for NetBSD 8.0?

We have plenty of time before NetBSD 7.0 ships to ensure dhcpcd works
for all reasonable use cases.  Its maintainer is a NetBSD developer and
has made his intention to ensure this is so very clear.  NetBSD 7.0 is
the right time for dhclient to die.
