ANN: IPv6 support for network

I've added enough IPv6 support to the network package that I can run the
attached test program successfully, in the following manner:
$ runghc NetTest.hs fec0::1:215:c5ff:fee2:451a
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Thu, 08 Mar 2007 07:56:20 GMT
Server: Apache/2.2.3 (Fedora)
The changes required were very minor:
Network.BSD: New getAddrInfo and getNameInfo functions logically replace
getHostByName and getHostByAddr, respectively.
Network.Socket: The SockAddr ADT has acquired a new, um, whatever it is
that ADTs acquire (a branch? a case?), called SockAddrInet6. Functions
that work with SockAddrs are now SockAddrInet6-savvy.
Network.Socket: New typeclass, HostAddr, allows definition of inet_ntop
over HostAddress and HostAddress6 types.
Documentation isn't yet 100% complete, but it should be pretty clear
what's going on. I've bumped the library version in the .cabal file,
just to make sure people don't confuse it with the regular network library.

Please take a look and let me know if you have any comments. If things
look sane, I'll do the remaining doco and formally submit my changes.
