Hmm, just a wild idea for this one...

What if we setup a couple of virtual NICs on the CC, and used DHCP to
draw IPs for each of those, which would ensure that we safely receive
IPs that the DHCP server doled out to us?  We won't actually use
these, except to stuff them into our list of public_ips.  Maybe not
perfect, since this lease might eventually expire, but it might get us
a couple of usable IPs for a while...
