I thought about that, but there are some issues:
A slash notation like "/24" can only mask out consecutive bytes; therefore,
something like '*:ca:ff:ee:d0:0d' would not be possible - e.g. my openwrt
router increments the first byte when using multiple BSS.
I also consider * as a wildcard quite concise and easy to use; but any other
format can be added to the parser quite easily should the need arise.
