Martin and I kicked about the idea of integrating the two at one
point, but didn't due to logistical problems with the current ACL
implementation in the Java broker. It seemed to make more sense to do
it as an extension to the shared ACL format, but that patch never
quite seems to go in.

Adding in a "from <netmask/hostname>" would be pretty simple syntax
wise, and similar to what things like PostgreSQL do. It's a shame the
@ syntax is already taken, but nm.

Something like this perhaps?

acl allow user from localhost
acl allow user from
