The argument from somebody saying that his "by name" API
hides IPv4 vs. IPv6 details as it should,

The presumption that the API "should" hide the differences between IPv4 
and IPv6 is a dubious one.  IPv4 and IPv6 really do act differently, for 
  a variety of reasons.  Some applications can get away with pretending 
that they're the same, others cannot.
