It's probably mostly a matter of moving some source files around. While
thinking about it, it occurred to me that your solution (just shut down the
DHCP client when switching to a static IP address) isn't going to work when
you have multiple network cards.

I hope I didn't give the impression "please implement it this way, otherwise
don't touch it". You're rightfully assuming that I won't be working on ncpa
anytime soon. So, I have no "rights" to it. I was just thinking out loud how
I'd want to implement it, but hey, if you think a different method works
better please go ahead.
