I have no idea how widespread this is, but recent versions of BIND write it this way:

Personally I'd kind of like to see host:port for IPv4 (for familiarity) and host#port for IPv6 (for clarity), but I don't know that it's worth spending much time on.

host might be a name instead of an address (if you have log_host_name turned on), so I'm not inclined to distinguish between address families. Altering the format used would be a 2 line change. (I hope the patch isn't held up over that issue).

Excellent patch, though.
