This is a third ticket for a patch contributed by Shawn Lewis.

Shawn's comment:
Both the BUNDY and KEA controller are very powerful and flexible, but many system administrators are
more used to “key=value” formatted configuration files, which are used by various network servers. On
the other hand, in small-scale networks, the configurations could be very straightforward (e.g., the DHCP
server listens on only one interface, all clients are in the same subnet). Thus, we would like to introduce
a custom backend. Third-party developers can choose implement this backend controller based on their
demands. We would implement a key-value version as an example. Following the conventions of the KEA
controller, we added a new file named /bin/dhcp4/, where the configure(string
filename) function and the init(string filename) function for the controlled_dhcp4_srv class are defined.

As discussed on Kea meeting (2014-07-16) we not include this ticket in 0.9, due to lack of available processing time. Therefore moving to 1.0.
