    initial v1  
    1 This also unexpectedly breaks any custom fields that have the `inet` database type. For example, when performing a lookup for a subnet, this HOST() conversion will produce no results, since the prefix length is stripped. And it is very annoying since the only way to work around it seems to be writing a custom manager that specifies a custom `WhereNode` implementation for the query set. This decision of casting every `inet`-thing via HOST() was really unwise and should be fixed.
