[squeak-dev] NetNameResolver useOldNetwork seems perhaps too conservative?

In Socket>>initialize:family:, there's a line
NetNameResolver useOldNetwork ifTrue: [ ^self initialize: socketType ].
that has been conserved across all the versions of the method I have in
my image (back to 2010).
What harm would be done if we simply *removed it*, do we think? It seems
bad to *pretend* to allocate a socket of the requested family but really
to not do so!
