Please start with not saying bullshits. The FreeBSD kernel support both
modes even if the default is bindv6only=1. Please note that the
GNU/kFreeBSD people have never been contacted about changing this
default value.

As the FreeBSD kernel seems to be the new model in Debian, I will be
happy to change the default value of net.inet6.ip6.v6only to 0 and
report a serious bug against netbase as the default value of the Linux
kernel doesn't match the one of the FreeBSD kernel.
