  Standard Dialup SLIP, CSLIP and PPP customers will be allocated a 
Single Static IP Address to be used to configure their software.  There 
are many advantages to be gained by Statically allocating the numbers, 
including the ability to have multiple mailboxes by using SMTP, etc.
 
How about a pool of dynamic addresses for most folks and static for
only those who have a _real_ need for such a thing.  That way you don't
tie up a lot of addresses for occasional and casual users who have no
_real_ need for static addresses.

Ease of configuration of software should not be a reason for static
addresses.
