Cute trick now in v3:

	update control {
		Class := 0x7f000001

	update reply {
		Framed-IP-address := &Class

	Framed-IP-Address =

  It normally requires both sides of an assignment to be the same data
type.  (e.g. ipaddr).  In this case, "octets" can be assigned to
"ipaddr" because the octets are 4 bytes in length.

  This functionality makes it easier to manipulate data.  The server
previously required that all input data was in printable ASCII form.  It
can now handle limited forms of binary data, too.

  The next step is to allow the inverse:

	Class = &Framed-IP-Address

  Which will also be helpful.

  In any case, v3 is pretty much done.  Unless there are major
roadblocks, it will be released by the end of June, 2013.
