Please. This doesn't even work if I use URL without literal IPv6 address, but
DNS name which have only CNAME/AAAA records. Validator says:

500 Can't connect to some.domain.name.com:80 (Bad hostname
'some.domain.name.com')


Also validator.w3.org is not yet accessible over IPv6.

It looks that development (officially) moved to
http://gitorious.org/projects/libwww-perl


A bug report is opened here
https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=29468

Also same bug is reported in Debian repository
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=614948

For example it looks that connection functionality was moved to
libnet-http-perl module.

if someone with knowledge of validator code would step up, it should be less
than hour of work to switch to new code, and test it.
