Feel free to deeply object, however, it is the correct thing to do. The bug
comes from how IO::Socket::INET6 is used in Net::DNS (and other places), not
with IO::Socket::INET6 itself. There is some background information about this
bug in comment #3.

It may be possible to resolve this issue with fundamental changes to how
IO::Socket::INET6 is structured, but that is analogous to insisting that the
lawn be replaced with concrete to solve the mole problem.
