Note that if you are using dnsmasq as plain DHCP server to hand out IPs instead of for PXE booting, you will likely already have a 3 second delay in most cases while it performs a ping check to see if the IP it intends to hand out is really free. If there is already such existing delay, the patch will not delay things further, so things are a little less dramatic than they may seem.

That said, will submit a patch that supports tags for consideration.
