If you check the archives you'll discover that our current inet/cidr
types were largely designed and implemented by Paul Vixie (yes, that
Vixie).  I'm disinclined to second-guess Paul about the external
definition of these types; I just want to rationalize the internal
representation a bit.  In particular we've got some issues about
conversions between the two types ...
