Right, understood.  What is interesting is that the constants themselves
were not available.  If you turn on IPv6, it detects multicast now, but
all of the multicast group constant args aren't exposed, while the multicast
API actually was before.

You know I was very cautious about considering this change, but believe it
is otherwise harmless for IPv4 builds, in particular.  I have an NT 4SP6
box I can validate this against, of course.
