 ifconfig doesn't support dhcp either, but dhclient is run via "DHCP" in

 Long time ago there was simple `hostapd_enable` and `hostapd_interfaces` :)
 But it doesn't allow to automagically start hostapd for hotplugged (i.e.
 USB) interfaces. On the other hand, automatic DHCP on hot-plugged
 interfaces have sense and automatic hostapd doesn't, IMHO.
