AFAICT, Paul is not objecting to our adjustments to the I/O conventions.
What he wants is to find a way for the inner inet_{net_}{ntop,pton}
functions to remain identical to the ones in BIND, and do the
adjustments in the Postgres-specific wrapper routines.  I'm not sure how
important that is in reality, but I have no problem with trying...
