That's not necessarily the case. There were lots of problems with the IPv6
support in exim breaking things for IPV4-only users, mostly in obscure cases
such as with subtly broken DNS. I believe they're all ironed out now, but
they caused a lot of problems.
Admittedly, very few things are as complicated as an MTA, and I wouldn't
expect any client software to break as a result of adding IPv4 support.
