Lovely! :-) I thought I remembered something like that but couldn't find any
info on it. It can get pretty ugly especially during a hacker attack, eh?

By the way, for it to work at all does the "next hop" router have to be
running Proxy ARP? It seems like it would have to. Example:

If RouterA has a static that says to send to send out e1, and
that causes RouterA to ARP for packets sent to, it won't work
unless RouterB replies to the ARPs with its own address. In other words,
RouterB has to be running the Proxy ARP "hack." (Some people call it a hack.
