 Replying to [comment:5 datallah]:
 >  * Update the file transfer code to support IPv6
 >   * I don't believe that the core purple_network_listen code is doing
 the right thing yet, but if it does, then bonjour file transfers *should*

 Would you mind talking about this?  Marcus and I were talking about this a
 little (in the context of XMPP and the code I committed a few days ago)
 and we both also weren't sure purple_network_listen is doing the right
 thing.  It seems to me like it would make more sense for it
 purple_network_listen() to attach to a wildcard address (either or
 ::) on the specified port, instead of finding the first that succeeds, and
 it also should take an "IPv4 or IPv6" option.

 Is that what you were thinking of or did you have something else in mind?
