I'm not going to commit this.  The library fix is as follows:

[apologies for diff mangling here - recent nightlies of Thunderbird3 have 
seriously broken cut-n-paste].

I'd prefer to commit this to the library and then fix all other things 
which broke using "blahout << "AS" << asno", rather than messing things up 
with typecasts.  Typecasting is the wrong thing to do.

The problem is nailing these things down.  I don't think there are very 
many instances where it would cause breakage, and I also don't think that 
the breakage is going to be very bad, but there's so much inheritance 
insanity going on in the code that it's very difficult to tell.

What do you think about this patch to rpsl_filter.cc and this approach to 
fixing the problem?
