   So you want CIDR address support.  You would want to
be able to specify:


where nn is the number of bits in the mask.  Hmmmm, that
is a bit of a challenge, but not an impossibility, given
the yacc and lex code that we currently have.  I'll see
what I can do.

Actually, I was thinking of smaller aggregations... At the place where I 
work, we have lots of small subnets (with for example /28 oder /30 prefixes) 
on our LAN, and I don't know whether there is an easy way to tell ra 
to report data just for a subnet a la

It's no problem to specify 2 or 6 hosts directly with host xxx or host yyy 
etc., but then it gets annoying...
