Basically, as adns, it refuses to query v6 nameservers (and wrongly fallback to
localhost) making it useless on v6-only nets.
I'm note sure how hard it is to hack on it, I'll probably take a look, but as
specified my intention was not to replace c-ares but just having an
alternatives more suitable for such cases, and hacking wireshark was the faster
way...

Gaah, not sure why it didn't get through first time...
