you could just route each interface with a different network and skip 
the bridging step entirely.

we do this all the time and its handy if you don't mind the increased 
routing complexity.  its definitely more flexible for us than bridging, 
and simpler to debug too.  of course there's no need to use full class 
C's, any type of subnet will do.
