I think it's probably not that much of a good idea.  Patches for the
http://svn.gnumonks.org/branches/ulog/ulogd2/ branch are more welcome.

ulogd2 doesn't yet compile, but I think you can try to figure out how to
integrate ipv6 support anyway.

I think the best idea is to do it right and add support for layer 2/3/4
protocols, very much like a real network stack.

this way we can have a single ethernet interpreter for mac addresses, a
ipv4 and ipv6 plugin for the respective headers, and a single tcp (and
udp) plugin that works both on ipv4 and ipv6.

If you have any better ideas, I'm open for suggestions.
