  Well, yes.  I've spent 5 minutes looking at it, and got the basic
idea of "SQL" and "IP pools". :)

  The general idea is to... grab IP's from a pool, based on a unique
key.  If an allocated IP for that key doesn't exist, then a free IP is
taken, and the key written to the table.

  As for additional elements in the queries, the schema was changed
from the original one, so the queries might be old.

  But you're right, it really needs a flow diagram, with explanations
of what happens when.
