According to RFC 4007, Section 11.7 states: "In this combination, it is
important to place the zone index portion before the prefix length when
we consider parsing the format by a name-to-address library function
[11].  That is, we can first separate the address with the zone index
from the prefix length, and just pass the former to the library function."

However, in the sense of being liberal in what you accept, 'fe80::/64%2'
should probably work as well.

Given that a zone_id is a) highly system dependent and b) only ever
meaningful for non-global addresses, I'm wondering what the use case for
storing them is.

I'm even wondering if 'fe80::1%1'::inet = 'fe80::1%2'::inet shouldn't
simply yield true. After all, it's the same (non-global) address.
