I don't think that is a correct account. People used the ip4r extension because it was faster, had more functionality, and didn't have those stupid network masks to worry about. ip4r does in fact also provide a type that can contain ip4 and ip6, which one ought to use nowadays. -- Peter Eisentraut http://www.2ndQuadrant.com/ PostgreSQL Development, 24x7 Support, Remote DBA, Training & Services -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (email@example.com) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
