been using .0 and .255 addresses (in the proper class-less places eg in middle
of a /23 ) for years now.  any kit or system that cannot handlesuch addresses
as being client/end-station addresses should be dumped onto the recycling pile
and got rid of (its likely that such kit cannot do IPv6 either.....)
