Currently there are limitations regarding dual stack operation and
networks with both IPv4 and IPv6 nodes. I would also like to eventually
get rid of the configuration variable. But this needs a little care to
not impact IPv4 operation or introduce unnecessary delays when creating
new connections. Until then I guess it's better to have it separate from
the current ros_comm stack.
