I completely agree on having two plugins, I just wrote a new one to keep it
separate as personally I'll never run it on a host that doesn't have Geo::IP
available. I also didn't want to mess with the SA package $OS provided.

Personally, IP::Country is no good to me going forward as it simply doesn't
have IPv6 data so I'd rather just move to Geo::IP entirely, but I wouldn't mind
if IP::Country was the fallback option. The data files then also get shared by
other things using the GeoIP C library.

If it's useful and could potentially be accepted, I'm happy to whip up a patch
to the current plugin that supports both backends, assuming any licensing issue
is resolved.

Oh, I forgot to mention, I think you'll need at least Geo::IP 1.39 to get the
IPv6 API methods, although I've been using 1.40, and that needs something like
1.4.7 of the C library.
