I did figure that the first (of four) alphanumeric of the barcode label is
related to the fourth Ethernet byte - though not sequentially. However,
your list of labels/Ethernet addresses seems to disprove my findings. I'll
have to dig out my mapping of label/Ethernet.

I didn't get anywhere trying to get the fifth and sixth Ethernet bytes, or
the hostid. There must be a look up table somewhere (in Mountain View most
likely :).
