DHCP lease databases can get big, and since m0n0wall runs out of RAM,
it doesn't take a large DHCP deployment to exhaust the RAM space
available. I believe this is more of an issue with short lease times
than longer ones.
If you're going to have 200+ DHCP clients, I'd strongly recommend a
dedicated DHCP server.
