At Clearspring we found it convenient to uses the last octet of the IP
since that was already unique per cluster (no clusters span multiple
subnets [1]).  We have on occasion confused ourselves by having
non-sequential ids, but it's probably best that those bugs were squashed
sooner rather than latter.

[1] And yes, this will be a nifty problem when a cluster no longer fits
on a single subnet ;-)
