That's a very good idea.  Fedora has this hack method which tries to
save the original file, but it eventually gets confused and ends up
with two copies of the dhcp file, losing the non-dhcpd version
entirely.  For computers that don't move around that doesn't matter
much, but for laptops that move around it bites you whenever moving
from a dhcpd server with an ntp entry to one that doesn't.

Does debian's setup also have a way for stale ntp.conf.dhcp files to
expire / get deleted?
