I also have a bug report open against the debian ocaml package asking
quite intently for IPv6 supoprt, also claiming ocaml to be 'useless' to
him until it would support IPv6.

Is there any IPv6 support planed in the near future ? I know this
discussion did already happen, but i guess nothing came of it back then.
