Let INET_NTOA and INET_ATON handle IPv6 addresses and arrange for some convenient   16 byte data type.

How to repeat:

Thank you for a useful feature request.

I'd like to "bump" this feature-request. Still found no solution :-( Would a native INET_ATON6() or so solve the problem?

It's almost 10 years after IPv6 was introduced, and it's getting more and more popular. There's a SoC project to add IPv6 sockets support, and IMHO this bug should be addressed as well.

IPV6 support was added to MySQL v.6.0

Will MySQL 6.0 also include a 128 bit integer column for IPv6, or alternatively a special column type for IP addresses?

I want to bump the support for IPv6 data types.  

Since 6.0 is no longer being developed, is IPv6 going to be supported in the 5.5 series?
