Putting this up for review because the reviewer of #5085 definitely deserves some bonus points. (And, if they are so inclined, they may review this portion separately.)

Reviewer: exarkun

Allow Twisted to connect to IPv6 addresses, using all currently supported reactors.

IPv6 clients are supported by passing an IPv6 address literal to connectTCP. Hostname resolution is the responsibility of the caller.

This change also significantly improves the internal maintenance documentation coverage for twisted.internet.tcp and refactors more client code to be shared between the IOCP reactor and all the UNIX reactors.
