hello,

it would be nice if the "ping" binary worked for v6 too. presently you
have to know in advance whether the address associated with the pinged
hostname is v6 or v4, and pick the right binary.

Hi,

I just wanted to report identical wish.

IMHO ping should beheva just like most others applications,
and connect using address returned by system resolver,
regredless it is ipv6 or ipv4. It should step by step try to send
package, and skip one if sending returns the error indicating that
system do not support one of the protocols or routings.

Adding -4 and -6 flags would also be usefull, to enforce testing
of one protocol, or for other reasons.

Thanks.
