Yes. We do it. Works fine. Your DHCP server must support it, though.
You need to be able to use the circuit-id to select a customer, which
is complicated by the fact the the redback only adds this circuit-id
on DHCPDISCOVERS, it doesn't intercept (that is act as a relay agent for)
unicast DHCP packets.

We're using ISC DHCPD. Use stash-agent-options, classes, pools with
only one address in it (one per customer) and you'll get there ;)
