Renumber a lot. It is hard for the Internic to hand out /19 when most of
the new providers will be out of business in 6 months. The only way to do
it is to get space from your ISP and then renumber if you move. After you
do that a few times if you do it will, you will be able to get a /19 and
then /18 and so on.

The tools for keeping IP independence should also be more mature and
widely deployed... like DHCP for instance, and IP aliasing, which isn't
available on older Unices.
