in reply to Forcing IPv6 onto existing modules

What should I call my evil module?

The method of changing methods and packages at run time is called monkey patching, so you could call your module IPv6::MonkeyPatch or IO::Socket::INET6::MonkeyPatch (although I like the former much better).

Should I upload it to CPAN?

Yes, please!
