Ah, I didn't notice your additional comments when I posted the link
because I didn't scroll down the page and for whatever reason I wasn't
CC'd when the bug was updated like I normally am, so I didn't expect
there to be any additional comments.  Oh well.  Anyway, I don't really
care which patch is used; yours seems to support more than mine and uses
stuff already in place, so you might as well go with yours.

Fair enough, but before I saw this I had also posted my patch for
review:
http://bugs.wireshark.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2433

Main difference is I used the existing range functions in range.h.
