OK, I have forwarded my saved emails to Paul.  Paul, there was great
confusion over how these data types show display addresses and masks,
and a compromise was hammered out that we are reluctant to throw out.

I wish our email archives where searchable online and I could point you
to the issues.  Can someone summarize the issues, specifically how did
we change what Paul originally gave us so it can be done again?   All I
have for detail is this from Tom Lane:

	The patch as given reverts the I/O behavior of the inet datatypes
	to what it originally was, rather than the compromise behavior that
	was hammered out at great length before 7.1.  (I'd give a link to
	those discussions if fts.postgresql.org were working :-()

Seems the archives were down back then in October too.  :-(
