Make common modules IPv6 ready by hotpatching
NetINET6Glue is a collection of modules to make common modules IPv6 ready by hotpatching them.
Unfortunatly the current state of IPv6 support in perl is that no IPv6 support is in the core and that a lot of important modules like NetFTP, NetSMTP, LWP,… do not support IPv6 even if the modules for IPv6 sockets Socket6, IOSocketINET6 are available.
This module tries to mitigate this by hotpatching.
