When a dynamic IPv6 type is specified all gateways will be tagged "dynamic".

Trying to modify an existing static v4 gateway is impossible and always changed to "dynamic".
The config.xml shows that it appears that just the description is changed to dynamic.

Resolve this by implementing address families in the gateway edit page "ipproto" inet/inet6.
Compare these when performing the dynamic check.
Do not allow changing address families after a entry is made. Allow deletion.

Ok, so I now name the dynamic gateways by their config type, Jim uncovered a few corner cases and I'll look into whatever config upgrade code would be required so that gateway groups still work.

Upgrade code checked in that I tested by upgrading a 2.0 vm with 3 dynamic wans, it upgraded accordingly but might need more variations to be certain.

This seems mostly OK but I discovered one case the other day that is still problematic.

If you have a PPPoE interface, and a custom gateway for that PPPoE interface (In my case, a custom name and custom loss/delay timings), it's possible when the PPPoE link is reconnecting for the dynamic counterpart (e.g. OPT1_PPPOE) to show up as well as the custom one, so it would appear for a short time that there were two gateways on the interface.
