Yeah.  This is a pretty self-contained problem, it just needs someone
who's motivated to work on it.  Mostly what we need is to understand how
we want to extend the previously-agreed-to I/O behaviors for IPv4 inet
and cidr types into the v6 domain.  (Or should we back up and ask if the
inet/cidr division still makes sense in the v6 world?  I hope so, but
if not we should face up to it...)
