That'd be cool. I've always wondered what a clue-bat would actually look
like... :)

Yeah, but then you'd have to handle collisions with subnets configured
on the internal interface and all sorts of weird edge cases, I'm sure...

Perhaps some sort of feasibility study on the arping approach could be
conducted? Someone with a cable modem who can check if `arping <addr>`
with its configuration address returns anything when no corresponding
address is configured on the router? Or am I completely off base in
thinking that would work?

Right, well if you don't mind restructuring the config file completely
in a non-backwards-compatible way, it would be pretty easy to give it a
section for each subnet, with an associated comment / name field,
and use the same widget as the hostname setup. Would make the config
file significantly more verbose, though, and also harder to read IMO...
