On most platforms, httpd will handle IPv4 connections on an IPv6
socket; the address family will be APR_INET6 and the socket address
will have a special format which indicates that the client is IPv4

Replace "Listen ##" with the combination "Listen" + "Listen
[::]:##" and you should be able to distinguish between client
connection type by checking the address family (not a real solution).

The system macro IN6_IS_ADDR_V4MAPPED() can check if an IPv6 socket
address represents an IPv4 client connection.  Apparently APR doesn't
provide an equivalent.
