Fair point. I could add an `ip -6' equivalent.

Ho hum. Well then, I've now made patches for both ways. Can you and
pitti please decide what is actually better between you? I'll not bother
writing any more code until then. :-)

BTW, while I experience a network-is-not-up race most times in current
autopkgtest, I didn't experience it at all with pitti's suggestion so at
least for me the race is won all of the time. I'm not sure if
network-onilne.target's semantics are enough for this either?

autopkgtest calls apt all over the place. Some of them are covered by
retry loops already, but I'm not super excited about hunting down the
rest until we can do it in a clean way or, even better from my POV, if
apt were to retry itself a few times before giving up.

It seems sensible to me to try not do work until we think the network is
"up" enough to contact our apt sources anyway.
