Assuming "-1" is "all ones" is, to me, a 2's complement bias. Coming from a
1's complement environment, I misinterpreted this and shot my mouth off.
Sorry, folks. I'm just learning about all this network stuff.
[I still have a problem with some wording in RFC1009, but am not sure this
is the proper place to raise it. Can someone advise me on this?]

We plead guilty of 2's-complement bigotry. I actually did not know there
are still 1's complement machines in the world, in fact...
Please send along any and all comments and suggestions on RFC0-1009 to
us. We are starting to think about the first revision.
