I've always been at least moderately annoyed that although my range 
.100-.199, only IPs in the .190-.199 range seem to get used, and those 
IPs get reassigned to new MAC addresses very quickly after the lease is 
given up.

Is there a reason to not use the entire range?  Whether we start at the 
top or bottom or middle isn't the point.
