As this goes against the RFC for DHCP it in not nor ever will be able to 
be done. There are many things that break when an ISP changes the IP in 
the middle of a users session and it is generally a bad idea to treat 
your customers as such. A quick search of the archives will give you all 
the times that this question has been put down on this list.
