	ok... so is it -just- me that gets the willies thinking of the
	2x64-1 available IPv6 addresses that can be forged as source
	addresses for spam origination?    i REALLY want to have a tidy
	way of only announcing -EXACTLY- what is being used (ok, modulo
	one or two adjacent numbers)  and not some architecturally 
	constrained "addressing plan" that has to conserve elsewhere.
	(yeah, and my co-bills want ponies)
