Right, but on a wifi hotspot you're probably just as well off with
nothing more complex than a short lease time. This concept would only
be useful on a network large enough that frequent DHCP renewals are
putting a major load on the network or DHCP server. For the majority of
us, it wouldn't really be necessary.
