I need to parse dhcpd.leases to store data in mysql

If we are talking about modifying the source code, why not an option to
either give a customized format to the lease file or an option to load
directly into a database ?

A good point. Another option would be to use the "on <action> ..." 
external links, eg "on commit <call code to add record to database>". 
Though care needs to be taken when using these not to introduce too much
latency into the server.
