 Apparently there are systems where you can bind to ::1, but you can't bind
 to  On these systems, evutil_ersatz_socketpair doesn't work
 right -- it only falls back to IPv6 when it fails to create an AF_INET

 I'm calling this a very low priority bug, since evutil_ersatz_socketpair
 is only used on Windows, and (as far as I know) binding should
 always work on Windows.
