I was thinking along the lines of stopping the DHCP service and calling
AddIPAddress, which should be the same as inserting the address manually in
the registry. I haven't looked into this though, so might not work.

(stopping the service would need a temporary hack, as it's not been
converted to an NT service yet, plus we don't have StartService to restart
