That was my question. I just built with ipv6 enabled using my msvc build on
my primary machine which does *not* have ipv6, and it still passes
regression tests fine.

Given that we have a runtime check, is there any reason at all not to
enable ipv6 on all builds on msvc?

(FWIW, it's been in the platform SDK at least since Windows 2000)
