I'm ending up with only two realistic choices that follow the criteria of
the users intent.

1,  Do not support adapter names at all for IPv6, i.e. only support with
ipv4only(1).

2,  Manually iterate all IPv6 interfaces on the adapter and forward onto
bind/connect.

The operating systems are really pushing for #1 but I think that is a very
weak position to take.  I think we can only proceed with #2.
