[Firehol-support] DHCPv6 source port

I have encountered a situation with Firehol and the dhcpv6 service. Apparently, the standard that defines how DHCPv6 works, doesn't specify what source port, a request or a response, must have. Firehol doesn't handle this situation, with the current definition of the dhcpv6 service. I'm currently using dibbler-server as a DHCPv6 server, instead of wide-dhcpv6-server, because wide-dhcpv6-server responds to requests, from a random UDP port. See here my initial attempt to resolve the issue with the wide-dhcpv6-server, which got an answer today: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=751407 

What do you think?

Thank you,
