Ah, right.  In config language, you can use a domain name
that does the lookup for you.

If you can:

	gdb dhcpd dhcpd.core
	(gdb) where

And send the output to dhcp-bugs at isc.org (along with a reminder
of how you got it to do that), that would be good.

If you can fit it into any of the standing manpages or create an
omapi-examples or somesuch, the best thing would be a diff against
3.1.0...just mail it to dhcp-suggest at isc.org.

If you can't, the next best thing might be a document we can
put under doc/, which would have to have the same license as
the base software package.

If that's not workable, we can throw whatever you have under

If that's still too much hassle, one of the dhcp-users has put
up a Wiki.  I think we link to it off DHCP's page at isc.org.
