Yes, this works fine, but it'll only do it on rebooting the box, not if the
IP changes whilst the machine is running (incredibly rare, in my experience
- only occasion I can think of is if your modem needs a power cycle but
m0n0wall isn't cycled at the same time).

If your office is on a static IP this may well not be an issue anyway - you
won't need to use DHCP to assign the IP to m0n0wall in the first place, so
you can define m0n0's gateway manually as well, I assume.
