Hey, im not dev or anything, and maybe shouldn't be adding more noise
to this, but, well, i use dhcp at school, work, coffe, home (true, i
could be using static ip here), and well.. all ISP here in Portugal
Hell, maybe im wrong, but i think there will be a lot of complains
from those more inexperient users (and useless bugs added in bugzilla)
if you remove this from the default thing.
To those who like the thin tweek their systems... well, they could
package.mask all packages they dont use or like, couldnt they?
Thank you and nice hack ;)
