Comment (by Olly Betts):

 We've had our first inquiry about backporting this:


 Sam seems to have found a workaround by reverse proxying connections.

 At this point I'm leaning towards not backporting given the risks of
 breaking currently working setups and that the next release series will
 hopefully commence later this year.

 If there's wider demand we can think about how to try to minimise the
 risks of such breakage (perhaps off by default with a way to enable
 support at runtime).

 I can also probably pull out a patch combining all the relevant changes
 which applies to 1.4.x if that's helpful to anyone wanting IPv6 who's
 happy to build a custom 1.4.x version to support it.
