Yes, we need to revisit the MPP scenario. Recently, we switched from dhcpd
to dnsmasq (not in current builds yet), saving a lot of memory (10MB) and
introducing a dns cache. But as Morgan, pointed out there are some bugs to
fix (though I suspect we already fixed some). Hope we have time to check
them soon.
