    I looked at the code in RFBConnection.c and this looks straight forward.
    Do you know the use of addrinfo stuff? If not, I will gladly help you out in
    that department [to connect to hosts protocol independantly].
    Alternatively, if you can show me how xcode works (I don't understand
    your project file layout at the moment, because I have never coded in
    this environment before), I'm sure I could get IPv6 supported swiftly
    looking at your address_for_name() function and socket_address()
    function in combination with the actual socket() and connect() stuff later
    on in that file.

    I took a look at the CVS and patched RFBConnection.m to incorporate
    protocol independent socket IO. Tested and confirmed to work on OSX
    Tiger (probably all OSX'es). Patch is trivial. Sent it upstream. Please
    commit and get back to me, thanks.
