IPv4LL sounds non-Gnomeish to me -- couldn't we stay just with
"Link-Local Addressing" if there isn't fancier commonly accepted
"IPv4LL" is as "gnomeish" as "DHCP" is. There are RFCs named
after both of the terms.
So, if you don't want to see "IPv4LL", then what would you suggest as
a replacement for the string "DHCP"?
Quite frankly, if you are configuring your network in such a
professional way that you actually might play with these options you
should be grown up enough to deal with the real terms and actually
also *want* to deal with them.
