All I ask of the DEBUG switch is to give out exactly the same information as when the NetInterface file contains DEBUG=YES.

I don't think that's necessary, or even styleguide compliant.

Some people may check the manual, but as a rule, they tend to spend their time elsewhere, probably dissatisfied with the general usability of Roadshow
I see what you mean, but expected behaviour in shell arguments and tooltypes will differ.

Alternatively, DHCPUNICAST could be merged into DHCP as a CONFIGURE parameter. DHCPUNICAST implies DHCP to begin with, so supplying it separately should be unnecessary.

BTW, last night I had troubles getting a lease, until I retyped the DHCPUNICAST line in the interface definition in ALL CAPS. How sensitive is the parser for those files?
