Then *manually* disabled, module should be blacklisted and any services 
that are IPv6
dependent or use IPv6 ( for example ip6tables ) should then be disabled 
or that *feature in them.

If user turns something off that something stay turned off ( and thing 
related/depend on it IPv6 or otherwize ).

Let's not waste cpu/ram/space/power on something that is not in use no 
matter how small the % of  cpu/ram/space/power is.
