I generally agree; however, I can confirm that Bonjour + IPv6 = not
good at the moment, and the patches which have already been applied
should not affect anything but Bonjour (they are all local to the
Bonjour plugin) on IPv6 (they come into play only for IPv6 addresses).
The way I see it, we're unlikely to break anything that isn't already

The remaining patch is a bit of a different story.
