Is this a use for something like the ISC dhcpd shared-network configuration.


In the dnsmasq case, we could have something like

shared-network=<interface>,<address/prefix-length>

or

shared-network=<interface-address>,<address/prefix-length>

In the first case dnsmasq would behave _as_if_ the specified interface
carried the address and netmask specified.

In the second case, it would behave as if the interface which carries
interface-address also carried the address and netmask specified.

If I've understood correctly, you'd just need a shared-network
declaration for each of your /24s.



For the avoidance of doubt, this is NOT currently implemented on
dnsmasq, but it has been on the "desirable" list in my head for some time.
