Fixup for IPv6 addresses should be reasonably sane.

Andreas, what kind of fixup would you like to see for IPv6 addresses? It's not
likely that many people will be typing *raw* IPv6 addresses is it?

Well formed URLs containing IPv6 addresses pass through fixup just fine.

I can't think of anything worth fixing up with IPv6 addresses.

I'll mark this wontfix then.

Of course if fixup *breaks* a well formed URI with an IPv6 address I'll open a
bug to cover it.

REOPEN:
I think the use case is that people would be copying IPv6 addresses from other
places (like /etc/hosts), and simply pasting that number, w/o brackets, into the
URL bar.

I think, based on other behaviors, that it would be a reasonable expectation for
this IPv6 address to be identified, and fixed-up into http://[IPV6]
