MAC address change


How widely do you think changing the MAC address of a NIC via
``ifconfig <if> hw'' is supported by the various network cards
and drivers out there nowadays?

My collegue and me have debated several times whether watching
the LAN for non-matching IP-MAC pairs can reveal any useful
information.  I argued that it may not, since the MAC is easily
alterable, but he objected, because it's not.  Now I ask you to
decide who is right.
