So now that all those are applied, what's step2? I mean, all this
re-arranging of a few lines is fun, but the rest of ffmpeg still doesn't
speak ipv6, my patches are not going in so that's apparently not right
either, and there's no clear outline of where this is going. We need a plan
and action. This "let's do nothing and wait for the Right Solution[tm] to
come in" isn't working.

- in os_support.c, resolve_host() needs to be converted to be
ipv6-compatible or removed; the inet_aton() backup needs to be removed
- all duplicate code in udp.c needs to be removed, right now it's just
duplicated even more
- tcp.c, ffserver, sdp.c, rtsp.c need to speak ipv6
- api needs to be able to return sensible error codes and applications need
to be able to report those

Any plans?
