We received a patch from Christof Chen at Allianz, which will appear
in the next 3.1.0 release;

       The update‐conflict‐detection statement

          update‐conflict‐detection flag;

          If the update‐conflict‐detection parameter is true, the server  will
          perform standard DHCID multiple‐client, one‐name conflict detection.
          If the parameter has been set false, the server will skip this check
          and  instead  simply  tear down any previous bindings to install the
          new binding without question.  The default is true.
