Using 'undocumented' option accept6 fails

I've been working on upgrading my tor-relay to use IPv6

For IPv4 I reject exiting, I'm on a single IP ftth network, exiting from this IP is /bad/ ;)

However since IPv6 is now available in tor exiting on IPv6 would be a good strategy to benefit the network more.

Hence configuration was added:
ORPort [2A02:80C0:FF70:f600::2]:9001
OutboundBindAddress [2a02:80c0:ff70:f600::2]
IPv6Exit 1
ExitPolicy accept6 *:*
ExitPolicy reject *:* # no exits allowed

Adding accept6 does not throw errors, without it atlas shows my node not allowing exiting of IPv6.

However it seems that unfortunately and expectantly accept6 /also/ allows exiting of IPv4

Config-file+build options can be provided if needed, contact me at gijsje+tor [AT] heteigenwijsje [DOT] nl

We should make the documentation more clear about how to specify ipv6 exit policies
