I'll remember this for next time.  If I get a chance, I will also  
test this to see if the dhclient process indeed goes away.

Yes, it would.  My question was what is the recommended process to  
switch an interface from DHCP to STATIC so that the dhclient process  
automatically gets killed.  Doing an "ifdown eth0", editing the  
configuration file, and then doing an "ifup eth0" left this lingering  
dhclient process around.
