 At some point, IPv6 support should be added.

 On the database level, this requires converting all given IPv4 `INET`
 values to IPv6 `INET` values, since IPv4 and IPv6 values do not play
 nicely together in PostgreSQL <= 8.4.8. (see:
 http://archives.postgresql.org/pgsql-admin/2011-07/msg00201.php) A helpful
 postgres dev suggests doing something along the lines of the following:

 `"address = '::ffff:'::inet + (NEW.address::varchar::inet -

 Next, `statusapp.views.helpers.is_ipaddress` and
 `statusapp.views.helpers.is_ip_in_subnet` should be rewritten to work with
 both IPv4 and IPv6 input and IP addresses.
