It looks beautiful on Debian Lenny/Sid GNU/Linux, which contains my IPv6 
patch:

1> inet_gethost_native:gethostbyname("ipv6.google.com", inet6).
{ok,{hostent,"ipv6.l.google.com",
              ["ipv6.google.com"],
              inet6,16,
              [{8193,18528,0,4097,0,0,0,104}]}}

(The patch is also used in Ubuntu.)
