OTOH I have seen machines (process/machine crontrol systems) that were
hardwired to 127.0.0.*/24 as ethernet addresses (eth0, not loopback)...
And now for some *real* crack-pipe networking:
Early releases of IBM's TCP/IP product for the VM operating system (5798-FAL
was the program number) used 126.96.36.199/8 as the loopback address. This was
in the '89-'92 timeframe, when everybody else had been using 127/8 for at
least 5 years....
