oh, uh, someone said something about relays. if you have a device
hanging around and can put the server on a different broadcast domain
than the clients (like any cisco router), you can use a relay to solve
this...the server only has to unicast UDP to the relay, the relay
takes care of translating to the right broadcast (or not) reply.
