  I've seen people use both "IPv6-addr port" (space sep.) and
"IPv6-addr/port".  I think I really like using '/', and haven't yet
found a place where that will cause problems except for in URIs.
Using spaces is just universally compliated.  I guess we could use
something like '%', but then again, me randomly proposing things here
is probabaly not the best place to make suggestions usefully.  ;-)
