Will it suprise people that dhclient has gone from base?  Maybe deprecate it
in the 8.0 release notes and remove it from current?  Or, is that what you

How I see it as removing it is just this:
It's no longer installed, but the mtree entries for it are not marked as obsolete, just commented out that they should be removed at some point.

Thus, existing users are not impacted, NetBSD backwards compat works it's magic and we stop caring about supporting it ourselves as our source framework moves forwards.
