I certainly agree.  We should then be able to switch very easily and
cleanly to the use of these new input and output functions, and add
the various utility functions that D'Arcy has outlined.  Should be
quick work.

We should leave the type name as INET, I think.

Bruce/Marc: we're OK for 6.4 with this still, right?  Even if it takes
a couple more days to get everything to fall into place?
