What is the recommended version for a new failover setup?  We tend to like
to be off the leading edge on this kind of stuff around here; stability
trumps new features and being up-to-the-minute.  Any reason to STOP using
isc-dhcpd-V3.0.5-RedHat ?  That's what I'm running now.  Any failover bugs
back in the 3's?

I recall a while back hearing of some kind of issue with 4 and failover that
was resolved by going back to 3, but can't find it in the archives.  So if I
were to upgrade from 3.0.5 I'm leaning toward DHCP 3.1-ESV-R3 .  Any reason
I should prefer DHCP 4.1-ESV-R3 instead?
