Good idea as this saves some of the oversight problems :)
Though the most fixes will go in Apache itself as the winnt_mpm references
sockaddr some times, but I think you want to abstract those with apr so
I'll get working on that too.

This was a quicky so people could see it work at all <grin>

Ah well I can explain that one, either my Visual Studio is doing weird or
something else is happening, as the structs before (mpreq if I remember)
are defined but the sockaddr stuff isn't... I will have to find a neat solution for it :)

I have ported some others programs to support IPv6 on winnt (Putty is the
most notable one) and my authentication daemon als sports v6 so I'll add
some debug code and figure out what they do.

See the diffed atches soon......
