I am working on fixing our test suite to run on IPv6 only hosts (which are becoming a reality).  Many failures today occur because of hard coded 127.0.0.1 values.

This is wrong.  We should refer to "localhost"

The "solution" to https://bugs.python.org/issue18792 moved us backwards towards hard coding IP version type specific addresses claiming that windows cannot handle resolving localhost reliably.

On any windows system where that is the case we should declare the system broken and simply not run any networking related tests.
