I am doing a CVS update with appropriate changes but it would require 
ECJ to bump to Java 1.4 minimum.  I'd prefer to avoid that if possible, 
but ultimately it may be necessary.

There is an alternative option.  The only place where we use this 
address is for the islands to tell the server what their address is. 
But it be sufficient to simply use the remote address of their incoming 
socket connections to the server.  I'd need some debugging for that 
approach though.
