     313== Stateless ==
     314The current design is stateless:
     315 - (pro) queries are not kept in the DHCPv6 server: no memory leak, no timeout cleanup, etc.
     316 - (con) the interface name and remote address are needed in the from DHCPv4 server to DHCPv6 server way (it makes the IPC symmetrical)
     317 - features like delayed ACK is harder to implement in the DHCPv4 server and impossible in the DCHPv6 server
     318 - the initial query is no longer available when the response has to be forwarded to the client. This impacts the  pkt6_send hook point.
