Comment(by nickm):

 >00:19 < wanoskarnet> re branch "short_address_rep": any explicitly non
 inited tor_addr_t structs will have AF_INET6 family, that hides exist
 family related bugs.

 I think the answer to that one is going to have to be: always use
 tor_addr_make_unspec, not memset(0), to initialize tor_addr_t fields.

 Special-casing the address [::] seems like a bad move to me.
