Do you mean, something like "ifconfig eth0:0 169.254.whatever.whatever" ? That 
doesn't look like a clean solution IMHO... I'd like to be able to get the 
static IP in a direct way... :-/

By the way, these toys seem to use Apple's mDNSResponder 58.3, according to 
the manufacturer [1]. I wonder is this behaviour is also found on Macs...


P.S.: I'm usually lurking out on #avahi @freenode IRC.
