Well, maybe we can split this up.  I'm familiar with writing the 
directory back-end, so I feel I can write that pretty efficiently.  What 
I don't have time for right now is re-learning/launching into a big DHCP 
protocol workflow undertaking and it sounds like you are beginning that. 
  You could, perhaps, design the store API and I could work to directory 
back it.  You could start with file-based storage (unix, XML) or even 
stub Java classes.  WDYT?
