[Kea-users] Read only hosts table?

I'm attempting to link our existing inventory system to Kea, so that Kea 
will hand out leases based on the IP <-> MAC associations that we 
already know about.

I tried to set this up by using the 'hosts-database' option, but it 
seems that Kea currently needs write access to that table.  Is that 
correct? Specifically, when it first starts up it tries to prepare an 
insert query, which fails if it doesn't have permissions.

My plan here was going to be to create a mysql view to map our existing 
data into what Kea expects, but I don't want Kea to try and change things.

Is there a better way to do this?  We have too many hosts to just 
prepopulate the config file with them.
