To be honest, I don't think it's only about IPv6-only environments.
A person performing the installation may only be on IPv6 link-local,
IPv6 autoconfigure, IPv4, only, whilst the machine to be installed has
dual-stack / all combos.
Unusual, true, but totally possible.

Thus, I think, we should enumerate all IP addresses, sans loopback,
and display them all.
