DNS Forwarding Service

```` includes a DNS forwarding service for Windows. This is
because Microsoft appears to be unable to bind to 6 to 4 and Teredo
addresses with their production DNS Server. After installing
````, the service executable is available as
`%PYTHON%\Scripts\dns-forwarding-service.exe`. In addition to the
documented install/uninstall/start/stop commands, it's also possible
to configure a bind address with the -b option. For example::

    dns-forwarding-service -b 2002:41de:a625::41de:a625 install

The service will be installed and the bind address will be stored in
`HKLM\Software\\DNS Forwarding Service\Listen Address`. Note
that the service must be restarted to recognize an updated bind address.

* Added support for a custom bind address to the DNS Forwarding Service
