    as network:/ and network/

    In some cases I get the feeling it means "Oops, I didn't mean to call it
    that, I'll think I'll change it." Then they forget to dump the old
    version. There's certainly a bit of dross lying around.

    I expect that's not the official version so best to wait for someone
    more knowledgeable and less cynical than me.
