rather not kill and respawn dnsmasq whenever a new lease is given in any
part of the cloud :P

Simon mentioned before why dnsmasq can't "reload" it's config because it
drops privileges. But I can't see a reason why we can't reread /etc/ethers
and the client cache (for me that's in /tmp/).

I would welcome a "state update" signal of some sort.
