Well, yes but I thought that it was now and that you were arguing to keep
that behaviour.  This seems to be the behaviour that I was suggesting
although you have half convinced me that this should throw an error.

So, it looks like the status quo is for inet::cidr to be a different
spelling for network(inet).  Is this the way we want to keep it?
