Python 3.3+'s ipaddress for Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.2.

Note that as in Python 3.3+ you must use character strings and not byte strings for textual IP address representations:

>>> from __future__ import unicode_literals
>>> ipaddress.ip_address('')


>>> ipaddress.ip_address(u'')

but not:

>>> ipaddress.ip_address(b'')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "", line 163, in ip_address
    ' a unicode object?' % address)
ipaddress.AddressValueError: '' does not appear to be an IPv4 or IPv6 address. Did you pass in a bytes (str in Python 2) instead of a unicode object?
