Well, I'd say using ALL:PARANOID in hosts.deny is incompatible with dynamic
ips which don't match up with DNS.

I don't see why you wouldn't do this all the time personally. I know I do.
Does it not make sense to have a static dhcp ip space for your regular
machines and maybe a dynamic space for random visitor machines? I use
linux dhcpd iand dnsmasq both of which read my /etc/hosts file. I then
have MAC addresses and names matched up in the dhcpd.conf
Glad it's sorted anyway,
