Hi there

Current m0n0wall uses ISC dhcpd for the dhcp stuff and dnsmasq for the
dns stuff. This raises some problems with static dhcp leases:
dnsmasq has support to read dhcpd's leases file to bind names to it,
however, if you assign static leases, dhcpd wont write this into its
leases file. Ok i guess you think: if your assigning static leases you
can also assign static name bindings. Yes thats true (and i'll handle it
here like that).

My point is: Why are we using ISC dhcpd anyway? We don't use any fancy
features of it. All the features configurable, via the web gui are also
avail only with dnsmasq. When only using dnsmasq there wont be any
problems with name binding anymore.

Am i overseeing something?
