Implement administrator-configurable alternative lease allocation strategies
From Support ticket #16513.
Relating to various investigations and plans for improvements to lease allocation, especially when large and nearly-exhausted pools are involved: #1126 Lease Preallocation Design #875 Propose a Better Allocation Strategy #895 Implement Alternate Allocators
There is also some reference to lease allocation in the 1.7 performance strategy Wiki page: https://gitlab.isc.org/isc-projects/kea/-/wikis/performance1.7
This is a request that it be possible to have more than one strategy (since we know from having looked at this, that it may be difficult to come up with a 'one size fits all' solution) so that administrators can pick the strategy that best suits their production environment.
