You've missed a few more though (doc + modules and sites conf)... but maybe there's no need to bother if you plan to change the names again in the near future :)

As I understand, they will be used as follows ?


Note: at the moment this doesn't work (still in progress I assume ?) with dhcpclient:

dhcpclient: Unknown attribute "dhcpv4"
