even if ipv6 is a real situation it is not the standard, ipv4 is, then, even 
if ipv6 is some network's standard it is not a global standard, ipv4 is

certainly then, it makes no sense that ipv6 is the default, neither for 
applications nor for the kernel

also certain then is that ipv6 is an ADDITIONAL option and who wants it, needs 
to enable it, either for applications as for the kernel, not the inverse 
situation as today

but this is not only a FBSD wiredness but a general confusion  ...

but so far as it matters to FBSD it is funny how many core/OS parts simply 
ignore NO_INET6 even if set ...
