Re: 16 year old bug

There is only one reason to use non-contiguous IP masks for *ROUTING*
tables (vs for IPsec SPDs, where a there might be multiple IP subnets in
the 5-tuple):
    IPv4 scarcity

Whether or not it's real scarcity or not, does not matter.

Would I spend any time fixing non-contiguous netmask bugs? No.
I'd tell the person to go to IPv6.
