Probably not.  I *think* the Red Hat backend uses tcpwrappers for its
ACLs, but I don't know. tcpwrappers doesn't use CIDR notation except
for IPv6, which the masters don't speak.

I'd recommend just creating 9 entries.  It's just a list after all. :-)

Anyone good with python-GeoIP?  I'd love to turn that into a dropdown,
and I know the GeoIP C headers export the actual country list,
continent list, etc. which is very cool.  But I don't see those
exposed via the python bindings.  Or maybe I'm just dense.
