Both need to be supported. I'm thinking you should just allow new tor
clients to have both a ipv4 and ipv6 address, and in the public
servers list on moria, just add an additional field for ipv6 address,
which older clients (hopefully) would just ignore. (In my other mail
thread, this would be one (net interface has native ipv6) or two
interfaces (ipv6-in-ipv4 tunnel))
