We have taken a few minutes and implemented the following as a "field trial"
until a decision is taken in Paris. The inetnum field now accepts
two forms:

inetnum:			(old form nothing changed)


inetnum: -	(new form)

The second form indicates a block of networks between and including the 
two networks mentioned. The first network should be numerically lower than
the second. The syntactic sugar " - " is required.

Whois will find the block if any of the networks is queried.

We now accept such blocks in database updates as part of the "field trial".
