The writing has been on the wall since RFC 1338 (Supernetting) was published
almost two years ago, since shortly after that is when the CIDR addressing
plan first started being implemented.

cisco and the other router vendors have gone out of their way to support the
CIDR effort, having integrated CIDR support into the earliest possible release
of their code.

CIDR, default, or die - it may not be the law, but it is reality.
