Oh, I forgot about that wart in RFC4007. Thanks for the cluestick.

I think that's not quite right. For instance, JDBC can't use UNIX
domain sockets last I checked, and I can imagine using it in a
disconnected context where you'd want to emulate multiple connection
points. Link local addresses would be perfect for this. So I think
it might be a bug, because Postgres isn't accepting the address
specification for scoped addresses. (In the local 8.1.x version I
have installed here, the inet type doesn't accept it either.) Now
that I re-read it, RFC4007 seems to be pretty clear that the scope
info is a necessary part of the addressing, so I don't think it can
be thrown away before looking at the address.

I remember when computers were frustrating because they *did* exactly what
you told them to. That actually seems sort of quaint now.
