Curently there are not so many IPv6 ISPs around.
Given that and the way libc6 does it's things makes it a very noticeable
performance increase to disable IPv6 where it's not needed.

,----[ grep ipv6 /etc/modprobe.d/aliases ]-
#alias net-pf-10 ipv6
alias ipv6 off

How does s.o. disable IPv6 when it's build in?
