Ok, that's great.

Yep, for instance hape:
This our HP-UX machine, I could arrange remote access for you.

Ok, ok...

My argument was also rather that the addresse are not so basic
data types after all and deserve their own module. Maybe we
should remove the ip4 functions from ndr_basic as well... ;-)

But since it seems to be very important for everyone that they
belong into ndr_basic, I will shut up regarding moving them
out... :-D
