See 621558 comment 9 - I've come to the conclusion that this is actually doable without too much difficulty.

Implementation sketch:
- Add an attribute + member variable isIpv6Only to socket transport. default to false (needed when we don't do DNS resolution, e.g. for SOCKS)
- when DNS resolution is done, iterate over the DNS record and store whether it is v6-only
- when the backup connection gets set up, read that property from the main connection to figure out whether to disable v6 or not

may be a duplicate of the bug Patrick mentioned, but either way, I'm not working on this one...
