summary: Support for IP address ranges (x.x.x.x/y) in proxy exclude list
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: fun: Just needs tuits, and not many of them.
priority: medium: This should be fixed one day.

Our proxy exclude list accepts filename-style wildcards (192.168.33.* and similar) on IP addresses, because I had the wildcard matching engine to spare anyway (having just used it for hostnames).

Of course I completely forgot that there's already a well-established way to specify ranges of IP addresses, that being the number-of-leading-bits notation ( Same thing applies in IPv6.

The proxy exclude list clearly ought to support this notation. It's standard, it doesn't clash with any existing behaviour, and it's not too hard to do. No reason at all why not.
