Yeah, and even that is not realy needed, as the server will usually just
reassign it.

I'm not sure what is the best way to plug all things needed together here,
and there certainly are multiple solutions. I think the way ISC dhclient
allows this mostly fits to static ifconfig nwkeys, and with wpa/psk
things would get messy anyway.

With wpa_supplicant running in parallel it is indeed enough to have the dhcp
client react on link changes.
