Will the dhcpd actually *notify* the client of changes?  From reading
omapi(3), this very much looks like a "command/response" interface,
with no way to install callbacks / select on "activity".

Better than parsing the dhcpd.leases file, maybe, but much worse to use
a polling interface than just passively wait for the dhcpd.leases file
to change (inotify etc).

A callback handler that runs an arbitrary command (e.g. script) with
some well-defined environment would be the right way forward...
