geoip asnum matching

Hi everybody,

I've got an issue with bind 9.10 and GeoIP asnum based matching.
As far as I can tell I need to match not only the AS number but also
the org name?

This works:
    match-clients { geoip asnum "AS8767 M-net Telekommunikations GmbH,
Germany"; };

While these do not:
    match-clients { geoip asnum "AS8767"; };
    match-clients { geoip asnum "8767"; };
    match-clients { geoip asnum 8767; };

This makes working with this feature unnecessarily complicated, especially
when dealing with non-ASCII characters for example with
"AS27699 TELEFÔNICA BRASIL S.A" or "AS28573 Serviços de Comunicação S.A.".

Is there a way to only match the as number without the org name?

I'm using the free geolite maxmind asn database from

Thanks, DO
