Patch sent to openvpn-devel list.

New text will read:

        --proto p
              Use protocol p for communicating with remote  host.   p  can  be
              udp, tcp-client, or tcp-server.

              These  will only try IPv4 to connect to the remote host.  To use
              IPv6, add "6" to the  protocol,  as  in  udp6,  tcp6-client,  or
              tcp6-server.   OpenVPN 2.3 can not auto-determine whether to use
              IPv4 or IPv6 (or automatically try whatever is available) - full
              dual-stack  functionality  is  available  starting  with OpenVPN

good enough? if yes, please ACK on the list, if not, please provide better text.
