If you want to do something like this, just set the lease time to a small
value - the client will then renew. This works just as well - it gets the
client the address quickly and recovers unused addresses relatively quickly
(most servers will hold offerred addresses for several minutes to allow a
client to request the address, so this isn't much different).
