It would be nice if you could avoid employing this kind of acronyms without
explaining them. Not everybody drinks the design pattern kool-aid.
(Google tells me that GoF seems to mean "Gang of Four", which is of course as
meaningful as a hip-hop band name can be :-))

In any case, if you think netaddr's implementation strategy is better than
ipaddr's, a detailed comparison would be welcome.
