This is not quite true. The bsd stack that our tcp/ip is based on had
quite a bit of ipv6 support. For example, resolv understands
inet6 enable inet6
Given the age of our stack, it's hard to know how well ipv6 worked in the
original BSD sources on a supported platform. It's pretty certain than
none of this has been tested on our stack, it's hard to know exactly what
would happen if this option was enabled.
