Nikolay, you may want to check out this Python tracker issue.

Giampaolo: I didn't even know it was possible for a single socket to be
dual-stack. (It would seem problematic for UDP recvfrom() for example.) In
Tulip it does indeed make more sense to create separate sockets and just
listen on all of them (using the same protocol factory). This can be
completely transparent to the code calling start_serving() and to the
protocol implementation. So if you're brave you can just send a code review
using to the python-tulip list!
