	This type of question is very much a private matter between 
	consenting adults/peers/clients.  I would not presume that 
	my clients would know what I was doing with this address space.
	I would not presume that they were not using it either.

	IMHO, this is something that is placed in the contract.  Sort of
	like a prenup, AIDS check, or whether my date bites -BEFORE-
	its too late/embarassing.
