Apparently, meta.c has no traces of having support for reporting to
metaserver via IPv6 as of SVN r17122, while it should.
Note that should a dual-stacked server connect a dual-stacked metaserver, it
should send two queries: one to add itself to the IPv6 servers list (thereby
proving its IPv6 connectivity), and one for the same for IPv4.
(In general, I feel that whenever a metaserver hostname resolves to multiple
IP's, civserver should try to report to all of them.)
