     [snips-users] ER: snipslogd and CIDR (plus TCP Wrappers?)

Apologies if memory fails me here (ie. if this request has been posted
before), but I think some of the ACLs and the like in snipslogd.conf
should understand CIDR notation and perhaps some options.  For example...

  # NOCOL Hosts Subnet (

...would be much cleaner as...


...or even...


Perhaps a hybrid "dream" set of options would be:

  permitnet nobroadcast notnetwork !

...which would effectively ignore traffic from the network and broadcast
addressed (ie. the "all zero" and "all ones" addresses) as well as a
router (or host) we specify... like "all but these exceptions."

Also would be nice to be linkable with TCP Wrappers... if for no other
reason than everything being in one place... =)
