#215 Cannot connect via IPv6 name/address

Networking (54)

There are actually two problems. First, it appears that the name resolution done inside of RFBConnection is always IPv4. This should be fixed so that a name can be resolved to an IPv6 address, as well as an IPv4 address.
After that, the presumption that a "host:port" specification can be entered into the "host" text widget will cause problems for entering IPv6 addresses. It either needs to parse [host6addr]:port type things, or simply not use the "host:port" at all so an IPv6 address can be entered.
This problem exists in 2.0b4, and presumedly many (if not all) earlier.
