In case that wasn't clear -- shncpd doesn't act as a DHCPv6-PD or DHCPv4
client, it expects you (the human operator or the startup scripts) to set
up what HNCP calls an "external connection" using the "-E" and "-N" flags.
So the design is the opposite of hnetd: hnetd controls the DHCP clients,
while shncpd is controlled by the DHCP client.

Depending on whether you already have suitable DHCP clients in your
system, you'll prefer one approach or the other.
