Great.  That covers all versions of Windows my employer cares about, so 
we can build our Apache with IPv6 always enabled.

I knew that but was wondering if there was some #if magic based on OS 
level defines instead.  I can see why there is not, though -- that would 
result in requiring an older OS to build an Apache that is compatible 
with the older OS.

Obviously :-)

By "break anything" I meant that it should still work despite the fact 
that they're actually only using IPv4, etc -- not that this would not 
uncover a bug -- which is always a risk.
