Thanks for writing that, I'm sure people will find it helpful.

On the subject of specifying netblocks, CIDR addresses and other ranges, do
you want
1) the limit to apply to the whole of the netblock in total?
2) the limit to apply to each IP number in the netblock?

It will affect the implementation quite a bit. I'm basically going to have
to rewrite IPBlock to support these, and I don't want to do it more times
than I have to :-)
