Does it actually work?  I recall that I tried it (might have been a
older patch), and it didn't work for me.
It does for me.  And if people don't tell me it does not work, I
will assume it just works.
Other people have tested it with success.  If it does not work,
*please* tell me.

I'd like to try it out but I'm still in the rebuilding phase of
my "pick-up-the-hurd-hobby".  However, is there any way of making
the patch a little bit more generic?  If anything, just to be able
to remove the "dhcp" connection that I think Roland was against.

For example, automatic adding of zero route if IP is 0.0.0.0. So to
setup the iface for dhcp one would have to add call settrans with
ip=0.0.0.0 (to get routing setup), mast=0.0.0.0 and bcast to
255.255.255.255.  But that seems a bit redundant since it's only
dhcp clients that will use it.
