Good point,
what was the consensus on this? We could go the route of using the 
192.168.x.x address space a quick and dirty route might be to attach an 
ip to the locfinder database, either just enter it in on of the 
available fields when you edit your details. That would stop people 
using the same ip in the same area for now.

Medium term, hell I don't know, but longer term when theres a degree of 
conectivity, then I like the idea of ipv6. Just the idea though, no 
idea how to do it.
