    Thank you for providing this alternative thought... although I do think so many conditions are hard to control in an interview.

    It's not that complicated if the code writer has some respect for the readers:

    if i+j+k+l == n:
    	part1,part2,part3,part4 = s[0:i], s[i:i+j], s[i+j:i+j+k], s[i+j+k:n]
    	if  not(i>1 and part1[0] == '0') and int(part1)<256
    	and not(j>1 and part2[0] == '0') and int(part2)<256
    	and not(k>1 and part3[0] == '0') and int(part3)<256
    	and not(l>1 and part4[0] == '0') and int(part4)<256:

    (Syntax may be off a little, I'm not familiar with Python.)

    An even simpler alternative would be an isValid(s,i,j) method, but then you have to substring twice.
