There is a much cheaper and effective way to support multiple IP addresses
per interface: number and bit mask, e.g.

        ifconfig le0 ipaddr hostmask

for this example, the host would accept through, and
it would only cost you a mask & compare to implement. Granted, this only
works for ranges of addresses, but given how cheap this can be, and that
you can easily assign ranges of addresses on a single network...

        just a thought,
