Are you proposing to remove all IPv4 support from OpenVPN 2.5, so that
an IPv6 connection will be required and an IPv4-only connection will
not work?

Or is this is about removing IPv4-only options and code and leaving
options and code that work for either IPv4 or IPv6, so users could
continue to have an IPv4-only setup by changing the names of a few
options in their configuration files?

Either way, can anyone give an approximate release date for 2.5, so we
can have a time frame for the change? (Even a "not before" date would
be very helpful in evaluating the impact of these proposed changes.)
