[Dnsmasq-discuss] feature request: all hosts in dnsmasq.conf

One of the most attractive features of dnsmasq to me is the potential
to put all the host network configuration in a single file; keeping my
dhcp3-server configuration in one place and my bind configuration in
two more is obnoxious.

But -- it looks like dnsmasq will only serve an ip address if the
hostname appears in /etc/hosts or in a current DHCP lease (if I'm
wrong about this, please tell me!).  It'd be really nice to have a
configuration option that would load up all the IP addresses from all
the dhcp-host option lines...
