Description:
------------
In 2010, IPv6 spam accounted for almost 2% of all spam.

* http://labs.ripe.net/Members/blazquez/content-spam-over-
ipv6

This is significant enough for a DNSBL for IPv6 to exist.

* http://virbl.bit.nl/

There are examples on how to use "virbl.bit.nl" with email
servers, but not programmatically.

IPv6 is quite different to IPv4, since IPv6 is separated using a
colon rather than a "dot".

It is not possible to put a colon (:) in a hostname, so the
current methodology could not be used.

IE: Dns resolved 2.0.0.127.cbl.abuseat.org to 127.0.0.2

I have contacted virbl at bit.nl to see what they propose.

This will form the start of development for IPv6 support in
DNSBL.
