Soooo, that sounds nice. But we should check how things are gonna behave on IPv4-only instances ? 🤔

I just tested this on my server by disabling IPv6 and checking the destinations using dnstop, it seems that dnsmasq automatically switch to use what is available.
(I didn't try to disable IPv4 and have only IPv6 since there seems to be no simple command equivalent for sysctl -w net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1)

I'm not sure that there need to be a change on dnsmasq.conf to allow query on ::1, or how it will work if IPv6 is disable (that's why I reverted the change).
