Really.  I didn't know RA's could:

- Configure NTP servers for me.
- Tell me where to netboot from.
- Enter dynamic DNS entries in the DNS tree for me.
- Tell me my domain name.
- Tell me the VLAN to use for IP Telephony.

Those are things I use on a regular basis I'd really rather not
manually configure.
