Agree. Until someone somehow adds a "smart" system for determining
whether IPv6 is active or not on-the-fly on the network and loading or
releasing resources as needed, then I suggest it remain on for now.

If someone is willing to work on that "smart" system, perhaps then the
decision to default should be re-evaluated.

Agree. Jóhann raised two issues regarding post-install: "allow/disallow"
and "make it easy". I'm for freedom so of course I would say that that
option should always be made available. I'm also for making it easy if
someone would step up to the plate and and add that option to
system-config-network-cmd (and maybe even -tui and -gui).
