I don't get it... what is the reason why you need to configure
addresses manually? for PTR records in DNS?
if you manually configure clients, you are making renumbering harder...
if you autoconfigure clients, when you renumber and you reconfigure
routers, the prefixes gets propagated to end nodes automatically.
