: I was fixing up some bad code in logger(1) and came across:
:94 #ifdef INET6
:95 case '6':
:96 family = PF_INET6;
:Now we should do something similar to the actual optstring of getopt.
:Although, talking to Joerg he has a strong dislike for INET6 within
:userland. Whats the stand on this?

:Say it in the living years...
Well, the above statement could very easily be rewritten like this,
if portability is required:
family = PF_INET6;
warn("ipv6 not currently supported");
In userland there is no real need for an 'INET6' conditional and,
Generally speaking, -6 options should not be conditionalized out
except when portability is an issue.
