Just to be very clear...  NO WAY is that code going to require that 
there is an IPv6 mapping for "localhost" in order to allow Apache to 
listen on an IPv6 socket.

I hear what you're saying about the order of operations and about not 
knowing what to connected to, but I don't know what to offer without 
taking the time to come up with an alternate patch myself.  Maybe I'll 
find the time.
