[gftp] Questions about the patch to make IPv6 optional


Last month there was a patch posted on this mailing list which makes IPv6 
support optional. The patch enables IPv6 support by default, wich makes that 
the problem with the default settings still happens. So would it be a good 
idea to set IPv6 disabled by default? I'm just wondering what will happen 
then for users on a IPv6 host...

On the other hand, would it be possible to first try an IPv6 connection, and 
if that fails, retry with IPv4? Maybe this would be a nicer fix, as you don't 
have to disable IPv6 then.
