Good idea. The machine also runs a nameserver :-) so I set up
a "nserver6" with an IPv6 address only, while "nserver" has an
IPv4 address. Then I tested (before applying any patches from
Daniel Berlin) on another pc - no, it does not work, it gives
me: "svn: Unknown hostname 'nserver6'".

Then I tried 'ping6 nserver6' - it works, while 'ping nserver6'
does not (no answer) - then again, 'ping nserver' works, but
'ping6 nserver' does not.

For this to be able to work, the program must be aware of both
protocols and if one does not work it must be able to try the
other. Or it must be told about the protocol, e.g. like this:
"svn -6 co svn://nserver6/test Test" :-) (hint, hint ;-))

It was definately a good idea, I forgot to test that. Thanks!

Have fun
