Out of curiousity, what does the patch rely on ? I toyed around with IPv6 a
while back (err, make that 3 years back. Gosh, does time fly!) and setting
it up was pretty involved, getting the right client libraries and stuff.
Is there anything like a standard interface, nowadays, or will the socket
(or is that 'socket6' ?) library have to worry about all kinds of different
interfaces ?

I'd check the patch out, had I the time ;P I might get it late next week or
