[Bug 1759014] Re: Netplan has no way to control DHCP client

There is no dependency on v239 for netplan backports. Bionic ships with
v237 (and some patches); the dependency on systemd is for >=
235-3ubuntu3 in netplan.io. I do not believe a newer version than that
is required.

Alexey, I really appreciate the work done to make such a backport
available, but it's typically not a good thing to recommend or enable,
since the reinforces a behavior (installing random stuff from the
Internet, running commands that download scripts and run them as root)
that is very unsafe.

It is better to enable and use the package straight from the Ubuntu
archive from a more recent release (or even build it yourself); or wait
for Ubuntu developers to make the backports available. For netplan, we
do run a large number of tests when making backports to help ensure
there are no regressions.
