Description (last modified by thijs)

At around the time #5086 is resolved, it would also make sense to support IPv6 address literals in the host argument to IUDPTransport.connect. This would only be supported for UDP ports which are listening on an IPv6 address.

It will have the same affect as using connect with an IPv4 address: future calls to IUDPTransport.write should only be made with one argument, the datagram, and the datagram will be sent to the address which was connected to.
