netaddr.AddrRange

class AddrRange(__builtin__.object)
 |  A block of contiguous network addresses bounded by an arbitrary start and
 |  stop address. There is no requirement that they fall on strict bit mask
 |  boundaries, unlike L{CIDR} addresses.
 |

 |  __init__(self, first, last, klass=<class 'netaddr.address.Addr'>)
 |      Constructor.
 |
 |      @param first: start address for this network address range.
 |
 |      @param last: stop address for this network address range.
 |
 |      @param klass: (optional) class used to create each object returned.
 |          Default: L{Addr()} objects. See L{nrange()} documentations for
 |          additional details on options.

when looking through the code.google.com wiki, I couldn't find any
examples of creating addresses with netmasks and AddrRange was the
first thing I found when looking through pydoc.

and still having two separate classes represent the same thing seems odd to me.
