I don't particulary like this approach since it depends on the node-name
resolving to something sane and a lot of people have this set up wrong.

What we've decided to do in the mean time is to force OpenPGM to AF_INET in
OMQ and we can then revisit this discussion later when have someone who
actually needs proper IPv6 support.
