IPv6 literal addresses on command line

Hello all,

Just to get some er, 'closure' on this, if you will (spot the thinly disguised,
desperate repost)...

To summarise: no-one is currently using rsync over IPv6 on linux. 

I superficially applied a patch suggested by a list member and while this fixed
the problem of correctly parsing the IPv6 literal address, linux was still
unable to find the host and appeared, unlike BSD, to ignore the /etc/hosts

Several items are mentioned in the TODO file with regard to these issues so I
suppose that, short of myself or someone else finding the time to engross
themselves in the rsync code, this is the way it shall remain.
