Some nice ideas/features there :-)

This one seems a bit obscure...

I guess it's just a case of having non-contiguous IPs such that
the way it's designed to work (for a class B) is not useful? I
expect this is one of those things which will always be a 'local
hack' for anyone who wants it.

BTW I have some feature suggestions in saved e-mail from others that
you might be interested in. I haven't done any work on delay pools
since I stopped working at a University (where we wanted to make the
students' access slow....) and started working for an ISP (where we
want to make the customers' access fast...) :-)

I will forward these on to you and see if you have more time than I
do to implement/consider them.
