IIRC 3.1 now has reserved leases - ie once you tag a lease as
reserved then it will never be given to any other device. If you want
to create a new reserved lease you can either connect the device and
then tag whatever it gets, or create a skeleton lease that will get
expanded when the client first connects.
It also gets around the problem that fixed addresses do not a) go
through the lease issue/expiry process, or b) get ddns.
