I just want to make sure that the IPsec configuration system can
handle this.  As it is, my network handles it just fine (mostly
because it's one bridged network).  If the IPsec Gateway can provide
the same address and proxyarp, it all works.  I just wanted to make
sure that this architecture was not disallowed.

Ok, that was unclear.  It SOUNDED like you said it couldn't be done.
If it _can_ be done then I'm happy.
