^ This passes `Domain => PF_INET6`. That makes no sense given that I can
literally give it an IPv4 :S

It also actually uses getaddrinfo in the background, however, the
commmit forcing this to be 0 explains:

    perl's IO::Socket::IP passes AI_ADDRCONFIG if no GetAddrInfoFlags are passed,
    which is often useful but also causes it to error when explicitly trying to
    bind to 127.0.0.1 when there are no _other_ IPv4 addresses present.

In this case however, we don't do that, so maybe instead of ending up using
`getaddrinfo` twice, we should just make this an optional parameter?
I'm hoping passing `undef` as host, the proper port and `AI_ADDRCONFIG |
AI_PASSIVE` here should do the same?

We also don't use `$listen_ip` for anything else either, so we don't need it
explicitly ;-)
