Hey, speaking of that ... do I need to "break" the range in which a "static 
IP" resides?   I've been doing this type of thing within a 'subnet' 
container, but wonder if there is a better or more expected way of doing 
that.  Or do I even have to bother?


  host gumshoe. { hardware ethernet 00:00:00:xx:xx:xx; fixed-address; }
