imaplib.IMAP4 and IMAP4_SSL do not use IPv6-capable name resolution
APIs. Attached is a patch (lifted from httplib) that enables IPv6 in
their open() methods.

I think it makes more sense to use socket.create_connection(), which
performs the getaddrinfo call. It makes the patch against imaplib more
compact. I've attached a new patch that uses create_connection()

AP, this is basically the same patch as the one for nntplib.  Do you
want to apply it also?
