There are many many other ways and people _think_ of them, _use_ them, are _observed_ using them, and things spread and grow.

what? any developer geting thousands of public IPv4 addresses by modifying software?
Nop. That's not true.
(Or I haven't understood well what you say)

> Relying on IPv4 scarcity is great because it makes it a lot harder to compromise that aspect of the network for the _average_ person.  And your software is small so nobody is going to try to compromise it for any serious reason.  If it is a valuable idea, then once it is open source people will discuss and fix security vulnerabilites, but you should be aware that they exist so you can relate around them.

Yes, I hope a public review of the code will catch a few impl glitches, hopefully not any affecting the design
