I've just uploaded this to squeeze-backports.  The only caveat is that
it exposes Net::CIDR's confusion about mixed environments [0], but that
only causes trouble when you aren't sure whether the gatherer will be
connecting via IPv6 or IPv4.  So i think it's OK for the more common
cases (where the gatherer is known to be either IPv6 or IPv4.

Hopefully the package will flow into squeeze-backports soon.

Please let me now if there is any trouble with it.
