Plans for IPv6 support on windows?

I had a look at this just now.
It's possible to configure better* IPv6 support on windows by editing the
config.h.mingw to include

#ifndef _WIN32_WINNT
#define _WIN32_WINNT 0x0501

and uncomment the line

I've built a new libpurple.dll that you can try with at

The caveat is that I haven't tested it as I don't have an IPv6 connection
here at home.  Would appreciate some feedback. :)
