While playing with the inet:ip/1 function I noticed that it can take an 
argument containing less than four octets.  What's the meaning of such a 
strange conversion like inet:ip("1.2.3")?

1> inet:ip("1.2.3.4").
{ok,{1,2,3,4}}
2> inet:ip("1.2.3").
{ok,{1,2,0,3}}
3> inet:ip("1.2").
{ok,{1,0,0,2}}
4> inet:ip("1").
{ok,{0,0,0,1}}
