Allow contiguous-IP "subnets" to be allocated from static DSL pools

Description

There's a hack in the code to deal with a legacy setup that has inherited this as a fact; let's regularize and support it so allocation/deallocation of these things works a bit better.

Merge "temporary" fix-up-the-IP-pool deallocation hack. See #13.

This will be regularized and integrated down the road since it's
likely that legacy data may show the same constructs, and there
are probably advantages to *creating* similar allocations new.

See #6.

A bit of thought shows this is likely a subset of #5. It may be useful to develop this case, then generalize it.

Generalize deallocation of netblocks within a static-IP pool. Still
needs to be tweaked to correctly handle non-PPP pools. (PPP only
requires that .0 and .255 not be handed out, no matter what the CIDR
boundaries; standard netblocks have a network number, gateway, and
broadcast IP that can't be used on any size block.) See #6.
