Maybe; but we do want to draw a line somewhere between overloading the
GUI with options and dropping to a text editor.  You can actually put
the options you'd like into /etc/dhclient-<interface name>.conf and NM
should merge them into the dhclient config it uses when bringing up the
device.  Granted, it might be nice to have different options on a
per-connection basis though.
