That would be enough to make most people happy.  Provided we
take care to make sure this setup always does the right thing.

Thats what concerned me: clearly the changes to sys_init were not
tested on a v4-only host. That suggests we're not in the habit of
testing all IPv6-feature changes in an IPv4-only kernel.
I think that needs to change.

Well, I care :).  But I think this would be subsumed by a pkg-ised
install system.  Just make the IPv6-only tools a separate sub-pkg of

Me, I'd still like to have a version of all the IPv6-ized tools which
are compiled with*out* -DINET6. That i agree is tricky.
