connect & http: support -4 and -6 switches for remote operations
Sometimes it is necessary to force IPv4-only or IPv6-only operation on networks where name lookups may return a non-routable address and stall remote operations. The ssh(1) command has an equivalent switches which we may pass when we run them. There may be old ssh(1) implementations out there which do not support these switches; they should report the appropriate error in that case. rsync support is untouched for now since it is deprecated and scheduled to be removed.
