I didn't dig around much which I made that change.  Generally the DHCP 
analyzer hasn't been something that I've heard of much use (although 
Vlad did point out that I broke one of my own scripts!).  How many 
scripts do you think it impacted?  I suspect it's fairly few and we 
probably just need to put a change note in the release to say that 
developers will need to handle a new event to get the data.  On the 
upside, you can handle both the old events and the new and they 
shouldn't impact each other (if you want to make a script work on 
multiple releases).
