Is it better to:

Well, RTIR's FindIP scrip is very self contained. I don't mind it
transfering into
RT::Extension::ExtractIPs with more configuration options. It makes sense
considering that code to support IP custom fields migrated from RTIR to RT.
If this extension would be generic and configurable enough. RTIR can just
switch over the extension one day.
