It's just a single "task", and you just have to concentrate on making it
work with that one type of switch.

That beats the heck out of having to deal with a plethora of M$-bred myopic,
non-compliant, and just plain stupid/broken networked devices.

If your switch is broken (wrt physical address mapping), at least you
probably have control over it and can replace it with something that works...
