I have no SPARE address. And this thing entirely should be avoided there 
for 2 reasons
1. This is colocated host, ISP has a policy on no MAC address/IP address 
tweaking. Non-standard services are too expensive and should be avoided at 
all costs.

2. This is not dedicated box, hosting email services and www. Not loaded, 
but critical in sence, that services should work.

I think about emulating all these systems because of educational nature of 
the project.., Also, maybe free shells for people :)
