Change of multicast address?

Hi,

It has been pointed out by MA Lighting that according to http://www.iana.org/assignments/multica ... sses.xhtml the 224.0.0.180 multicast address used by CITP is not well chosen as this is supposed not to be forwarded to other subnets. While most routers probably don't enforce this, I think we should begin a slow migration to another multicast address.

I am proposing changing to 239.224.0.180 instead. My suggestion would be that we start adding a configuration option to our products whether to use this one or the old one.

Thoughts?
