Hi, Paul:

1)    " ...  may be in fact: /writing/* and */deploying/* the code  ... 
":    Having no idea why and how the 240/4 netblock became so 
mysteriously kept away from being used while the IPv4 was officially 
already on its way to "Sun Set", we started the conventional approach as 
you stated. It was quite frustrating since we did not have the 
background in networking software. One day, we came across a short 
program code fragment that did the function of /*disabling*/ 240/4 
addressed IP packets. It is the "there exists an example" moment for us, 
like proofing a mathematics theorem. After all, there was no magic 
separating 240/4 from the rest of the IPv4 address pool to start with. 
It cleared our mind about this particular task. Now, we only cite this 
reference to challenge those software engineers who may state that using 
the 240/4 in their code is a lot more involved.   .... Q.E.D.  😉
