Setting up nginx to receive IPv6 traffic over Teredo is impossible on Windows XP,
since it is not aware of Microsoft IPV6_PROTECTION_LEVEL socket option.

At least in recent versions of Windows edge traversal could be explicitly configured in Windows Firewall settings according to this. Given the fact that nginx/Windows is mostly intended for testing and development, it's probably good idea to preserve things as is to let users control the behaviour of their firewalls instead of doing something in nginx.
