Not exactly what your asking about but have you considered using a
dynamic DNS service? I use No-IP () and have been very happy with them.
They even manually setup IPv6 records for me even though they are not
technically supported. Although I am paying for a domain name and dns
they provide free sub-domains as well. If thats not an option I'll see
what I can do about a rewrite rule for you.
