IO::Socket::IP provides a protocol-independent way to use IPv4 and IPv6
sockets. It allows new connections to be made by specifying the hostname and
service name or port number. It allows for connections to be accepted by
sockets listening on local ports, by service name or port number.
It uses Socket::GetAddrInfo's getaddrinfo function to convert
hostname/service name pairs into sets of possible addresses to connect to.
This allows it to work for IPv6 where the system supports it, while still
falling back to IPv4-only on systems which don't.
It provides an API which, for most typical cases, should be a drop-in
replacement for IO::Socket::INET; most constructor arguments and methods are
provided in a compatible way.

* Revert "Add 749212.patch patch"
This reverts commit 3c530918ff9a2626dfe536fca267a285fcb6ed5c.
Patch reverted as it seems to introduce regressions, e.g. in bts from
devscripts. bts show -m $bugnumber fails to download bugreport.
