The only potentially good reason I can think of is to test your IP-matching regexen. That is, if you're against using Regexp::Common::net.

    Actually, I have a legitimate use for this. I want to compare the accuracy of two competing products, which are essentially large ip range databases. I have both in my DB now, and am writing a script to perform lookups on a large number of random IPs. I am examining those cases where the results do not line up.
