Has anybody done any work on Arduino to support IPv4LL addressing? This is the missing link for a full zeroconf setup on Arduino. Thanks to a lot of people's work, there is service discovery and promotion, but if your network doesn't have DHCP or pre-arranged static IP's, it won't work.

The most promising information I've found so far on Link-Local is this: http://www.zeroconf.org/QDIPv4LL.html

Has anybody tried to get this working? Is the DHCP code for Arduino sophisticated enough to be able to take this approach--like, does it check to see if the address it's given is actually available?
