We already do.  The issue is what way should we give admins to _fail_ if
IPv6 doesn't start.  Maybe just a postgresql.conf setting,
"exit_on_ipv6_failure" or something like that.  It unlinks the param to
the -i/tcpip_socket functionality.  However, it doesn't give us a way to
do IPv4 only if the server supports IPv6 too, or to do IPv6 only.
