Not familiar with Python (Perl guy, basic), but I can always try stuff. I
am just a sysadmin :-)

I have read the link you posted, and I think I would need a *lot* of hand
holding to get it in the web-ui.

What I can try is see if it works outside of the web ui. Importing the dhcp
schema in the directory and filling in the dhcp objects. Then get it to
work with a dhcp server.

If that works, then we can see how we get from there.

I already appreciate you take this seriously. Thanks!
