Speaking of IPv6: is the IPv6 enabled on the Pythonlabs Windows
distribution by default (sorry, I don't have a Windows box in my
use at the moment)? Does Python support the older IPv6 stacks
for NT4 and W2K?
What is the recommended method of finding out if Python and the
underlying OS support IPv6? I can, for instance, create an IPv6
socket with a Python version that does *not* support IPv6.
