Looks mostly good!

I'd be a little more comfortable if the IPv6 address tested were not simply 8000:: -- that's enough of a special form that it makes me a little nervous about the correctness of other cases. How about 8000::abcd ?

On the documentation: "Return the number of chars printed" isn't correct; no characters are printed by this function. Instead, something "return the number of characters written to <b>out</b>'" would be more accurate.

Quick git note: this isn't mergeable as-is, since it includes a re-merge of master into the branch, and also includes the common_misc branch, and also includes your #4434 fix. Generally, it's best to avoid unnecessary back-merges from a main branch into a topic branch , and to have each topic branch do only one thing so they can be merged independently.
