It's the ideas that I like to see and the methodology behind it.  I have
to admit I liked the idea of the /etc/eth file for MAC to Hostname

Elaborate, you that paranoid?  Over paranoid gets you faster than
scrubing MACs.  I would worry about, does my router have holes in it?
Plus let your MAC fly on the wireless network.  I let my neighbor
connect to mine, they can't afford the internet.  One caveat, all they
have is net access.
