[squeak-dev] The Inbox: Network-dtl.137.mcz

There are problems with the new network support when running on Windows
with a newer VM that provides IPv6 primitives. This preference allows the
new network support to be disabled.

Default setting is true, which enables the new network support (as
is currently the case for a trunk image). It can be set false to disable
new network support, and I think that this should be done for the
Squeak 4.4 release image, otherwise we are going to cause problems
for lots of Windows users.

If no objections I will move this to trunk in a day or so.

If enabled, IPv6 and the new network support will be enabled if the required primitives are present in the VM, otherwise the new network support is disabled regardless of whether the VM provides IPv6 primitives.
