[pkg-dhcp-devel] No Options used in init script

Hi Packaging Team,
I think I've found a Bug in the start script of the isc-dhcp-server package.
I try to run the dhcp server under a different user, therefore I edited
the /etc/defaults/isc-dhcp-server file.
I added the user and group to the OPTIONS variable.
OPTIONS="-user dhcpd -group dhcpd"
If I run the dhcpd in foreground it is switching to this user after
doing root stuff. Butt if I use the init.d script it doesn't do this.
I've found the position in the init.d script where to do this.
start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --pidfile $PIDFILE \
--exec /usr/sbin/dhcpd -- $VERSION -q -cf $CONF $INTERFACES
for me I will append this line for my reasons but I think it would be
better to stay default!
