I could live with such a choice if the netaddr authors agree that it
is the right choice (them being experts themselves in the domain).
I don't want to be accused of drkjam's accusation of fast-tracking

accusation regardless, but there is no reason to make some Python
users unhappy because they feel they are subject to political games).
