Rather than use the do_site snippet, I just changed the way do_last works
in eQuoria. If your argument to last includes a period, rather than doing a
search on a str_cmp() match for the name, I do a search for a str_str()
match on the ip address field. This way, I could type "last 207.207.207",
for example, and see everyone that has used that class C address
(I don't do name resolution) as their last login. The same would work
with name resolution (and I used str_str() to remove the case sensitivity
from strstr(), but I don't recall if that function already existed in stock
or if I had to write it.
