The problem is, I don't have a single place that knows all the names and
addresses of the DHCP clients -- each router assigns IP addresses for
its own WiFi and LAN segments.
I could have a subdomain for each router: "client.r1.example.com",
"client.r2.example.com", but then I would have to know which router a
client was connected to at any time, if I wanted to reach the client by
name. And if the client moves to a different router, its FQDN changes.
My goal is to be able to say "ping client.example.com", and get the
client's current IP address, no matter which router it's connected to.
