OK, fair enough, let's go down that path for a moment :-)
I probably could figure out how to do that based on the existing IPv4
code. Some small parts of IPv6 support are already there.
However, I'd have two questions:
1. Wouldn't there need to be some sort of discussion first to ensure
that all the compiler/interpreter implementors do it the same way?
2. I don't know anything about the autotools stuff save that it does not
get along very well with me. If I submit a patch that assumes that IPv6
support is available, would somebody be able to add the appropriate
tests and ifdefs around it to ensure that it really is?
