comment What's the “OBEY” Tux logo all about?
Thanks! Fascinating! The only single piece of that I had any awareness of was seeing "They Live" back in the late 80s.

comment How to provide a “guest LAN” on one ethernet device
Yes this is in place and working nicely (the NAT is actually done by the router so I just skipped that stuff). I did throw in an extra line to allow ssh from guest-to-lan which might be handy at times. The acid test was nmap runs from machines on each of the subnets to the two lans; confirms the desired behaviour.
