[Pdns-dev] auth serving now really works, plus outgoing IPv6

I put a new snapshot online here:


Compared to the previous snapshot:

	- Full outgoing IPv6 support! Disabled by default. IPv6 addresses
	  are full citizens, meaning they get queries based on their
	  average response times. To enable, set 'query-local-address6=::0'.

	- This in turn means that PowerDNS now does speed accounting more or
	  less on per IP address basis (exactly, per nameserver per IP

	- As IPv6 tends to be somewhat slower than IPv4 (because of the
	  tunnels), you can uncomment some lines in syncres.cc mentioning
	  'IPv6 fanatics' to give IPv6 an unfair speed advantage.

	- authoritative serving now actually works in many more cases
	  (previous version mostly worked)

	- serve up the RFC 1918 zones by default.

	- Zone refreshing from the . servers was broken, which could lead to
	  problems if all root-servers change IP addresses.

	- make 'authoritative connection failures' count more heavily in the
	  throttle statistics. 

	- ANY queries are now supported as by other nameservers, which means
	  we now cache these answers, and let parts expire. This is per-rfc,
	  and saves lots of packets

	- Negative caching was broken for 5 minutes after a
	  negative entry expired.
Let me know how it works for you!
