For what it is worth, I am currently using IO::Socket::INET6 in 
"production" code achieving boringly normal IPV6 connections to and from 
instances spread all around the globe. The same code works seamlessly to 
IPV4 - being a direct replacement for IO::Socket::INET. Mostly (but not 
exclusively) on 5.10.x perls.

But then I don't do anything "exotic".
