I agree.  Our networking group has plans to push out IPv6 capability
as one of the Next Big Projects and applications really need to have
some kind of Happy Eyeballs capability.  I used your select(2) code
in a legacy application that I ported to IPv6 and it works very well.
Of course, this would also address the general problem of clients
timing out on a bad multi-address answer regardless of IPv4/v6.
