It doesn't help that the US government has a huge chunk of the address
space allocated to it.  Evi Nemeth has a nice bitmapped picture which
shows IPv4 space as a square with used blocks marked, and the center
third is .mil, and is mostly empty.  I believe these were based on
IPs that are actually used, as observed from some of the backbones.

 of the week debugging Monday's code.  -- Christopher Thompson
