Well, Christian's point about scoped versus global addresses is a
good one, so there might be an argument for leaving it alone, on the
grounds that you ought not to be able to come from there.  On the
other hand, since people are tripping over the feature right now,
they obviously _are_ able to come from there.  So maybe just hacking
it up is the best answer for the time being.  (I'm slightly more
concerned that the inet datatype apparently has this issue too,
because it would seem that it's rejecting perfectly well-formed
input, which is surely bad.)
