I have never used DHCP. Someone told me a bit about it and I implemented
it. Isn't it working the way I did it ?
Anyway I would propose to make it stable as it is now, release it and then
wait for comments. Of course, if someone has a really good idea, he can
either implement it himself or tell me how he done it before and I think
about how to do it with the new scripts.
