--- Comment #12 from Mikael Nordfeldth <mmn@hethane.se> ---
The following URL explains how to add IPv6 support to LWP:
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/2215049/how-do-i-enable-ipv6-support-in-lwp

The "best answer", by user cjm, was:

   It looks like you just need to use Net::INET6Glue::INET_is_INET6. To quote
its example:

    use Net::INET6Glue::INET_is_INET6;
    use LWP::Simple;
    print get( 'http://[::1]:80' );
    print get( 'http://ipv6.google.com' );


Another answer, by Ondrej Prochazka, mentions that it might not work with "$ua
= new LWP::UserAgent();", then running ->request on an object created from
"HTTP::Request". I.e. this doesn't work:

   use Net::INET6Glue::INET_is_INET6;
   use LWP::Simple;
   $ua = new LWP::UserAgent();
   my $req = new HTTP::Request("GET", "http://[::1]/");
   my $res = $ua->request($req);


Do these hints help in any way to adapt the validator script to support IPv6
web sources?
