[pkg-dhcp-devel] Bug#611825: isc-dhcp-server: DHCPv6 server difficult to start / cohabit with DHCPv4

It appears to me like it's pretty hard to install isc-dhcp and set it
up according to the type of server one wants to use; e.g. setting it
up as a DHCPv6 server specifically, or having a DHCPv6 server
alongside a DHCPv4 server.
I think a little more could be done to facilitate such setups and
avoid people editing the isc-dhcp-server init script (and potentially
losing their changes in an update).
It's far from ideal I realize, but attached is a patch which attempts
to make this a little simpler: setting up a DHCPv6 server from there
is a matter of symlinking the init script or copying it to a new name
and editing a file /etc/default/<basename_of_init_script>. Setting up
the mode of the server (to serve v4 or v6 addresses) is set as an
additional option in that file.
