I see, in python 2.7, in the TCPServer implementation is hard-coded to use ipv4, can not handle IPv6 case. it hard-coded set address_family as socket.AF_INET. so when binding IPv6 host, it will throw "gaierror: [Errno -9] Address family for hostname not supported".

The code should to judge the provided host is IPv4 or IPv6, and base on the host type to set address_family as socket.AF_INET or  socket.AF_INET6
