What about cases where I only want one or the other? Would a simple method 
exist to limit input to v4 or v6 only?

Also, what are the implications to functions such as network_sub, 
network_cmp, etc. when given mixed v4/v6 inputs as could easily happen if the 
two are freely mixed in the same data type?

Cheers,
Steve
