The point is that I (we?) don't want lots of options that less than
1% of the users actually need cluttering the webGUI. And yes, if you
already run a TFTP/PXE server, you should run DHCP on it as well. The
m0n0wall DHCP server is only there for the convenience of those who
can't run their own server for some reason, and it's limited (for
example, it loses the lease database on reboot).
