// You might think we could just implement a DHCP client at the protocol
// level and have cross-platform support for retrieving PAC configuration
// from DHCP, but unfortunately the DHCP protocol assumes there is a single
// client per machine (specifically per network interface card), and there
// is an implicit state machine between the client and server, so adding a
// second client to the machine would not be advisable (see e.g. some
// discussion of what can happen at this URL:
// http://www.net.princeton.edu/multi-dhcp-one-interface-handling.html).
//
// Therefore, we have platform-specific implementations, and so we use
// this factory to select the right one.
