This would work if the over-simplified description I have given was the
complete system.  However, it's not.  :)  Let's just say that for
out-of-band reasons, the devices attached to the router MUST be on the
same subnet.  The devices are actually bridges to an entirely different
(and non-standard) kind of network, and the external relationships
between them mandates that they all belong to the same IP subnet.

Thanks for the suggestion though.
