I like the patch - particularly your eye for portablity in this rather
messy area.

At 3000 lines, it will take a bit to intergrate - but you seem to have
addressed the fundemental design problems fairly well.

The main problem will be gettting an IPv6 setup so I can test this
stuff...  Naturally, any patch would need to be to HEAD.
