[mrtg-developers] IPv6 patch for MRTG: final version

Hi Tobias,
Here is the final version of our IPv6 patch for MRTG, against 2.9.29.

This version includes fairly complete documentation (command-line help, 
configuration reference and specific IPv6 documentation in ipv6.pod) and 
has also benefited from a major rewrite that has reduced code size and 
hopefully increased readability.

As with our previous patches, a version of MRTG with this patch should 
behave in exactly the same way as a non-patched version unless IPv6 is 
explicitly enabled by the user, so everyone should be able to use their 
existing scripts and configuration files with the patched version.

At Simon Leinen's request, this patch does not change the "public" 
interfaces of SNMP_Session.pm any more, so other applications should not 
have problems either.

The patch has been tested on various Linux distributions, including Red 
Hat 7.2 and 8.0, Mandrake 9.1, and Debian unstable, with and without 
IPv6 support (as before, IPv6 requires the Socket6 and INET6 perl 
modules; instructions are in ipv6.pod).

We think this is ready for inclusion in the next version of MRTG.
We hope you agree. :-)
