 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.

 Changes along the lines of what you're talking about are what I had
 I'm not sure about the removal of the finding a port in the range - it
 seems like that is pretty useful (and if we're specifying the protocol
 should still be possible).
