Well, but was the changing of money for a *purchase* or a *lease* ?  The coming
CIDRization seems to lend itself more toward leasing your IPs from your provider
than purchasing them... much like small companies rarely buy a suite in a larger
building, instead they lease... with IPs though, the length of term of the lease
would be something to the effect of 'while getting service from the same provider'.
