	Currently no, but that brackets, plus colon, plus portnumber
	format  ( []: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:

	IPv4:	[]
	IPv6:	[IPv6 ::]

	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... )
