Ah, my bad, then there's the question of how much error types we want to
raise (vss_parse catches some of them, but far from all), because it could
be as simple as:

- find first colon (fc)
- find last colon (lc)
fc == lc => ipv4 with port
fc != lc
    *(lc - 1) == ']' => IPv6 with port (and check the first char is indeed
    else IPv6 without port
