imho, if you get an ipv4 mapped (or compatible) address and you look
it up in the ipv6 space, i think you're bound to lose anyway, right?

as for the unspecified address, you could put a name in for that too,

i think it makes more sense if the names of the files are shorter, as
the name of the "127" file is now.  others may feel otherwise.
