[Thomas Hertz once mumbled:] 

That would be a breeze if my addresses were static, but I've yet to find a
dhcp client that supports several _dynamic_ addresses! It should even be
possible using a client identifier instead of the interface MAC (if the dhcp
server supports it, that I do not know).

<Thinking aloud>
Now that I've had my breakfast coffee (and more), and can think more
clearly, I think it would be better to just bridge the OPT1 interface with
WAN and enable filtering bridge. Will this work with traffic shaping? It
probably would. Apart from that bridging would work for me, it sure would be
interesting project to replace the dhcp client on the m0n0wall with one that
supported multiple addresses. Maybe one of the dhcp-proxies would make a
good starting point?
