That seems so onerous that I think few people will do it, and not
regularly, resulting in the tests breaking and nobody noticing.
Reconfiguring the loopback interface like that requires root
privilege, and won't survive a reboot, and doing it in the system
configuration will require hackery specific to the particular flavor
of Linux you're running, and probably other hackery on non-Linux
systems (never mind Windows).  Why can't you make it work over
