Re: Convert some local addresses?

"But does that convenience outweigh the possibility that you will have to share your public IP address with 10 other customers of your ISP?"

Yes, actually. I could restrict my use without pain (for instance, I don't really need both the 192.168.* and 10.* ranges). If the range that is safe to use gets too restricted, then it just means that I'll implement something to make it work, either with fancy router tricks or switching my LAN to use IPv6. I'm not sure which way I'd go -- it all depends on what the least painful path is, and I haven't needed to conduct that analysis yet.
