    Nice, I hadn't seen that repo's web interface yet! That's a solution for core modules at least, but I still have the problem under (2) that even though it's the latest version it may not work.

    For now I think I'll work around it by simply skipping the corresponding tests and noting in the docs that you must have an IPv6-enabled Socket module to use this, but it would be nice to be able top specify this in a Module::* installer.

      Sounds like the common practice :)

      but it would be nice to be able top specify this in a Module::* installer.

      Hmm, so a patch to Module::Depends - identify the dependencies of a distribution

      and a patch to Module::Install#requires

      So you end up with

      requires qw' Socket 2 unpack_sockaddr_in6 '; # requires qw' Socket 2 Socket::unpack_sockaddr_in6 ';

      That could work, and doesn't look particularly hard to implement.
