net specification in bro

I downloaded and installed bro 0.6 without problems, apart from some
minor changes required in and Rlogin.h.

I noticed, however, that this version of bro still validates values
of type 'net' according to the outdated 'class A/B/C/D' convention.
This is a problem for us, because our local network includes two
non contiguous nets /24 with addresses belonging to 'old' class B.

Before modifying bro source code, I ask to this list whether bro
developers have already updated the code to meet more recent
conventions (e.g. CIDR format).

In addition, I'd like to know whether bro developers have planned
to extend bro language with a type 'interval of IP addresses'.

Thank you,
