Proposal [Trac #1212]: add IPv6 support to network library

Since we seem to have converged on an agreeable API and implementation 
for adding IPv6 support to Network.Socket, I've added another patch on 
top of this that transparently adds IPv6 support to the Network module.

This required no API changes, merely a few modifications to the 
plumbing.  I've attached the patch for review.

If the Network.Socket change is to go in, I think this one ought to as 
well.  That will leave Network.BSD as a legacy-only package that can 
only deal with IPv4.
