I disagree here, if you e.g. use a hostname and resolve that before 
connecting this would dynamically resolve to either IPv6 or IPv4.

True, I'm not sure if it makes sense to have IPv6 as an external module 
any longer since its been a while and its enabled by default anyway. I 
guess after the CC branch we might want to enable it in the default 
kernel config and remove the module packaging. This would also save some 
space in the end.

Versioning is based on the kernel, so I don't think I get this argument.
