address parameter under
[httpd] maps directly to a Mochiweb parameter. It seems it only supports one IP address. So:
[httpd] address = ::will bind to any IPv6 address on the system.
To keep IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity, under Linux, you might need to make sure that /proc/sys/net/ipv6/bindv6only (
net.ipv6.bindv6only in /etc/sysctl.conf) is 0 (see the discussion related to Debian bug 560238).
On other OSes (where V6ONLY is the default) it seems that CouchDB will be single stack.
