I found the answer to ipv6:
As of perl 5.14 all needed to support ipv6 is to replace any instance
of IO::Socket::INET with IO::Socket::IP like
$handle = IO::Socket::INET->new(..)
replaced with
$handle = IO::Socket::IP->new(..)

I have just tried it in the example server and client and everything

From what I have read IO::Socket::IP is a high-level abstraction layer
on-top IO::Socket::INET and IO::Socket::INET6 which deduces which kind
of socket to use, eg. ipv4 or ipv6.

And since Debian Wheezy provides perl 5.14 we are home free;-)
