Hi Adam, this looks very good!  One feature I thought would be useful
is a test entry that would accept an IP and tell you which ipblock (if
any) matches it.  This would really only be useful if a given ipblock
set contained a large number of distinct IPs/CIDR's.

Would that be useful?  I look forward to playing with this new feature
set once you have a patch available!  (perhaps I can help with some
coding / bug fixes at that point...)

Best regards,
