Wouldn't it be something like:
	'>bbbb' or '!bbbb'

instead (for portability to non-big-endian machines (I'm assuming the packed
representation is supposed to have network byte order))?

Just a thought,
Mike

...
and use either struct.pack or array to coerce it into a binary string:

  a = apply( struct.pack, [ 'bbbb' ] + adr )
