Request to change IPv4 preference - mobile apps

I sent a message to the list about weirdness with IPv4 being preferred
over IPv6 in the iOS app a few days ago, but it didn't get there for
whatever reason.

I've since done a bit of digging through the code and found that
preferring IPv4 is intentional, and it's also implemented that way on
the Android app too.

It seems a shame to hobble native IPv6 support for everyone just to
work around some peoples misconfigured setups.

My suggestion/request would be to change the apps to prefer IPv6 as
default, but add a switch to the apps to disable IPv6 or prefer IPv4
for those with broken setups.

Does that seem reasonable?
