Currently no, but that brackets, plus colon, plus portnumber
format ( [126.96.36.199]:5678 ) makes most sense, especially as
colon INSIDE brackets exists for IPv6 address literals..
I will code it right away, available from my CVS after commit..
Hmm.. DRUMS drafts tell that address literals are of form:
IPv6: [IPv6 ::188.8.131.52]
That is, there is embedded SPACE in there now, a year ago
there was a change from [IPv6.addrlit] to [IPv6:addrlit],
but now ... I need to do additional plumbing to support
that format -- Ah well..

Stars don't change their positions -- except this one earest to us.
Perhaps you did mean planets ? (That weather-balloon issue is
some Canadian stratospheric balloon which reached today southern
Finland, and was well visible in quite large area as it flew in
about 8km height -- the balloon is circa 100 meters high, and
some 40 meters in diameter; a really big one... Sorry, I didn't
see it :-/ I have spent entire day at hacking weird internal
email related applications at work... )
