dhcpy6d - a MAC address aware DHCPv6 server

The used SocketServer module of Python has no support for raw sockets,
as far as I see. Let me know if there is a way to get the MAC in a
cleaner way.

Will that day ever come? :-) I think until this day a lot of RFCs will
be written. This server here just allows to make transistion easier.
And, it also allows the use of DUIDs, so it might work in an IPv6-only
world.
