    initial v1  
    88(i) We put so much effort into get this non-privileged mode working nicely on Windows, so its a pity to error-out trying to set the interface to use dhcp. This should be fixed.
    99
    10 (ii) We have too many options exposed to the user in --ip-win32. That whole option could be deprecated. Default to auto = dynamic or adaptive. Manual method is already handled by ifconfig-noexec. The code should figure out how best to set the address on an interface, not the user (say prefer dhcp if that fails ipapi via service). Power users can always use --ifconfig-noexec + a script.

    12 (iii)We do re-write route-method to use service if interactive service is in use no matter what the user specified; re-writing ip-win32 to dynamic (unless manual is specified) with service helping when needed looks like the smart thing to do.
