IIRC, since sarge or etch it tried to automatically detect a dhcp server
and on success would configure the network for dhcp. On failing to
configure the network automatically, it would ask.

(I guess this is a sane default behaviour that is fine for most people.)

IMHO it seems weird to not offer to configure network manually
especially if you know it is going to fail if it tries without asking.

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god
than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other
possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.
