When calling list_dns_overrides(session_id) it returns an undocumented result, aaaa_ip, what is it and is it safe to disregard?

Example returned result:
{id=228471, mx_priority=5, mx_name=ALT1.ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM, spf_record=, aaaa_ip=, a_ip=, domain=bitspill.net, srv_record=, cname=}

Relevant documentation found at http://docs.webfaction.com/xmlrpc-api/apiref.html#list_dns_overrides

AAAA records are (and work) just like A records, but for IPv6 instead of IPv4.

An IPv4 address is the type of IP address you are likely used to seeing, in the form "123.123.123.123". An IPv6 address looks something like "2001:0db8:0042::7334"

As of this writing, the world basically does not use IPv6, so you can ignore this for now. Someday, you may want to have your domain support IPv6; over time, it should become more widespread and readily available.

Webfaction announced IPv6 compatibility on June 6, 2012, which was the World IPv6 Launch Day.
