Very interesting since there is not much works today on IPv6
in Tomcat and there is many parts in the code where 32 bits IP
address are assumed.

And as usually only test on IPv6 networks will make code more
carefull about 32/48bits

Another reason to use connectors like mod_webapp or mod_jk

Could you check these one ?
