This is not what you are looking for, but it's related, and I thought it
might be useful to others: As I've had received quite a few spams recently
I've written this little program so that I can catch the host of the spammer
and report to their ISP.

ip_demangle.py: Demangle an ip address written as a single number
Useful for catching spammers hiding behind little tricks.
Use it like:
python ip_demangle.py 00032100360014
def ip_demangler(ip, show_intermediate=0):
hexcode = hex(ip)
ip4 = 
if show_intermediate: print "hex dec"
for i in range(4):
hseg = hexcode[(i+1)*2 : (i+2)*2]
dseg = str(eval('0x'+hseg))
if show_intermediate: print " %s % 3s" %(hseg, dseg)
if __name__ == "__main__":
import sys, os
ips = sys.argv[1:] or ["3627528556"]
for ip in ips:
print "original", ip
ip = eval(ip+"L")
print "decimal:", ip
ip = ip_demangler(ip, 1)
print "conventional:", ip
os.system("nslookup " + ip)
