Hello!

>From the top of my head: we couldn't register IPv6 agents into the
SNMP manager, the API simly didn't handle IPv6 addresses (and the
transport protocol). With HTTP a peername function didn't expect IPv6
addresses and crashed. I don't remember the other problems exactly,
but ther were similar in caliber. With the source we could solve them
- it was just annoying.
