      Description

      I'm honestly not sure how you would go about this, but currently you must repeat your Data Type aliases constantly to cover all cases.

      Example:

      Base IPv6 Address: https://github.com/simp/pupmod-simp-simplib/blob/master/types/ip/v6/base.pp

      Bracketed IPv6 Address: https://github.com/simp/pupmod-simp-simplib/blob/master/types/ip/v6/bracketed.pp

      It would be really nice if the Bracketed case could be something like the following instead:

      type Simplib::IP::V6::Bracketed = Composite[String['['], Simplib::IP::V6::Base, String[']']]
