IMO this is not correct. The ipv6 API is designed so that its use is
automatic, and people get IPv6 without even knowing about it. Yes, there
have been issues now and then, and some programs included a "ipv4-only"
switch. But the default should always be the future proof solution. I
then propose a "--ipv4-only" switch that could be used when people with
weird configurations have trouble...
