Hey Alex,
   Absolutely no problem, and I'll send 1.8 either today
or tomorrow.  We already support the 'net' keyword, so
you can say statements like:

   ra -nr filename src net 128.64

so that may satify your needs.
Thanks for the mail and remind me to send 1.8 if I
forget in the next day or so.

Although I've probably gone on everyone's nerves with my wrong Linux error 
reports, I would be interested in this... I'll promise I will be more 
cautious ;)

A possibility to specify subnets instead of only hosts or Class-C blocks 
would also be great (if there is one already, I didn't find it the tcpdump 
manpage doesn't mention any expression for this...)

I was just about to write some perl script to generate this from a ra -c 
output ;)
