Description

This should reset the last digits of an ip address to a 0. This is same method that Google analytics uses. This allows for the ip address to no longer be associated with a specific person, but still allows some security checks against ip. This should be done in cbGetIParray, which will allow this feature to apply throughout CB and its plugins.

This can wait for Symfony implementation as a function to do this is included in HttpFoundation component, which is used for managing GET/POST/ETC.. data (and would replace our Input usage).
