proxy_pass behavior

Should proxy_pass retry ipv4 if ipv6 fails?   Currently (1.5.12), it
does not, and there is no way to force proxy_pass to always use ipv4.

Specifically, if a proxy_pass host has dual records (A+AAAA),
proxy_pass seems to only try the AAAA.

I'm considering submitting a patch if there is support for this.
