I'll need to setup both DHCP clients to test functionality for this, 
which is why I didn't just do it tonight. The problem I want to avoid is 
if we do a flush, but the client daemon is still running, come 
expiration, the client daemon might try to reconfigure the device...even 
if it means adding dhcp logic in the lfs scripts (or replacing them in 
BLFS). Also, is anyone still using RP for PPPoE, alos simple ppp, that 
is willing to test? I unfortunately no longer have a ?DSL circuit to 
test with so I'll need some help from somebody who does. I would think 
if the link is set down the client daemons for the dhcp clients would 
exit, but would ppp attempt to reconnect? I'm also thinking that the 
added functionality for ifdown can be done in a modular way in 
/lib/network-services so that it can be divvied up for each who needs it.
