Too easy ;-)

A 15 minute hack does the job:

$ ./ipv6calc --out octal 2001:888:19f0:0:210:5aff:fe45:9b17
No input type specified, try autodetection...found type: ipv6addr

See latest CVS whether it fits all cases. If yes, send a note and I will
create a new release.

BTW: makes it sense to implement this output format also for IPv4? It can
be done, but if not, it saves me about 10 minutes ;-)
