Really? That seems like a serious limitation - imagine a machine that's
acting as a router from a public network to your own private network,
and you want that same machine to serve DHCP only on the private side
(to avoid making the admin of the public side angry :-). I could see how
using raw sockets could muddy the waters, but surely they must have a
way to configure their server to only listen on a particular interface?
