[Rhythmbox-devel] Request for comment: IPv6 DAAP

GNOME Bugzilla ticket #402477 points out that Rhythmbox does not support
DAAP over IPv6. In fact, libdmapsharing does not quite work with IPv6
yet. I would like to fix this.

The largest change requires that Rhythmbox listen on an IPv6
address. There is a patch at the bug referenced above that implements
the following logic:

1. Try to listen on IPv6

2. If that fails, try to listen on IPv4

So, IPv6 will be used if available and IPv4 will only be used if IPv6
fails. I don't think I like this technique. What should Rhythmbox
do? Should there be a "use IPv6" checkbox in the DAAP plugin

I hope that we can come to a consensus on how this should work. If
we do, I will extend libdmapsharing and modify the Rhythmbox plugin
as necessary.
