It's not as bad as it sounds, according to
a Client ID is defined as follows:

"128 bit Client ID based on IPv4 addresses:

32 bit  Server ID IP address (bits 1-32)
 8 bit  Random number or counter
88 bit  Truncated MD5 hash value of the nickname
o Server ID IP address - Indicates the server where this
  client is coming from.  The IP address hence equals the
  server IP address where the client is connected."
