[Vserver] ability to use 130+ ips within a vserver yet?

tuesday, i ran into a major emergency with a hardware failure on our email
machine which uses 130 ip addresses. my only choice was to move it to the
host side of our dell vserver host. this is presently causing an extreme
amount of port clashes as the email server wants to grab every ip on port 80
for webmail rather than stick to a single /24 and i so far have not found a
way to bind it to only a single network.

putting it into a guest would cure all of this i believe... i did not do this
initially due to the 16 ip limitations...

is that limitation released yet? or is there code available which works well
enough to stuff it into a production environment? i have had to shut down 14
vservers just to get mail to run :(

the only other option i have is to buy a replacement server and put mail onto
that which i prefer not to do as we are targeting a large new server to put
all the vservers onto which would leave the dell to run email as a stand
alone machine but this wont happen for a good month yet as once the server
comes in i have to recompile every virtual to live on amd64/opteron arch as i
move them over (quite time consuming considering i am moving 40+ vservers off
a p3 intel environment)..
