[pkg-dhcp-devel] Bug#592539: isc-dhcp-server: supply additional initscript for IPv6 daemon

Package: isc-dhcp-server
Version: 4.1.1-P1-9
Severity: wishlist
Tags: ipv6

ISC dhcpd supports both IPv4 and IPv6. But both modes need a seperate
daemon running (one with -4, one with -6).

       The server either operates as a DHCPv6 server or a DHCP server, but not
       both  at  the same time. To run as a DHCPv6 server, use the -6 flag. To
       run as a DHCP server, use the -4 flag. If neither is used, the  default
       is to run as a DHCPv6 server.

Please provide a way to run both daemons (with seperate configurations)
at the same time, for example by installing two initscripts.
