It appears to be a little more complicated then I thought. IPv6 support
in Perl is pretty bad[1]. I don't see a easy way to determine the
address family of the inherited socket, let alone properly unpack it for
the AF_INET6 case. And gethostbyaddr() is IPv4 only without an IP
agnostic counterpart in base.

As to tunnelbrokers, I've been using a tunnel from Hurricane Electric
( Tunnel setup might be slightly more difficult then
SIXXS, but registration is much faster.
