What you say is right but whether the kernel supports an hybrid IPv4/6 stack or not there's not much we can do about it anyway.
Exactly what are you suggesting with the ServerSocket class you mentioned? What do you expect it to do?
Note that platforms supporting the dual-stack are already supported. This:

>>> socket.create_server_socket(("::", 0))

...on Linux will create a socket which is reachable both as "::1" and "127.0.0.1".
So if I'm not mistaken the alias for specifying "listen on all interfaces for both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses" would be "::" instead of "" / None.
We can document that.
