her at the apnic meeting, we are indulging for a bit into the deep topic
of how ot textually represent 32-bit AS numbers.  is it xxxx.xxxx or
xxxxxxxx?  while we readily admit that a deep many year discussion of a
dot is clearly a topic for the ietf, we do have to allocate these
things, so actually need an answer.

on the other hand, i wonder if this ingenious community could come up
with the extraodinarily difficult programming task of routines to
convert between the two notations.
