The problem is that the underlying QemuOpts-based code treats "qemu_opt not 
set" and "qemu_opt set to false" the same way:

  ipv4   ipv6
  Y      Y       PF_INET6
  Y      N       PF_INET
  N      Y       PF_INET6
  N      N       PF_UNSPEC

We want:

 ipv4 ipv6
 Y    Y     PF_INET6
 Y    N     PF_INET
 Y    -     PF_INET         (ipv6 = N)
 N    Y     PF_INET6
 N    N     PF_UNSPEC
 N    -     PF_INET6        (ipv6 = Y)
 -    Y     PF_INET6        (ipv4 = N)
 -    N     PF_INET         (ipv4 = Y)
 -    -     PF_UNSPEC

I think this patch gets the desired semantics:

The first if handles the "default to N" case, the second handles
"default to Y", the (absent) else case handles "default to
