I wish the timing had worked out that way, but they have to be gone by June 
1, and I can't give up the Sprint IP's until July or August. The 
alternative to the ugly solution is to make them re-IP all of their 
domains, and AFAIK there is no easy way to do that. Last time I checked, 
NetSol makes you do each one individually.
