I've also seen commercial equipment that'll do that, but m0n0wall
won't.  I'd imagine the way it works is it'll use proxy ARP to respond
to any/all ARP requests, and permit any IP on the LAN and remember
which ones it is servicing from there.  I'd be interested in seeing
any technical docs you can find on how this is done.  It may or may
not be possible with FreeBSD.

rootfs on the download page.

It's been discussed in the past, and Manuel wasn't keen on the idea
for good reason.
