With the way I have this defined, option43 should only apply to
ArubaAPs in the subnet, right?  The reason I ask is
because we seem to be getting option43 leaked to ArubaAPs on other
subnets.  I just want to verify this config should limit the option to
the subnet it's defined in.  Thanks again for your insights.
