Hysterical raisins. In the socket constants, INET means v4 while v6 is
INET6. If you don’t want to redefine in Perl what INET means, relative
to everyone else in the world, then you can’t use that name for a module
that does both v4 and v6. Even if the modules were merged, those class
names should retain their respective meanings.
