Description of problem:
The systemd unit file for the Bitlbee IRC->IM gateway is hardcoded for IPv4.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. systemctl start bitlbee.socket
2. telnet ::1 6667
Connection to Bitlbee daemon.
The following change to /lib/systemd/system/bitlbee.socket fixes it and retains the binding to the loopback device:
Is that really it? I see 127.0.0.1 all over the place:
matej@wycliff: bitlbee (master %)$ grep -ri 127.0.0.1 .
./bitlbee.xinetd: bind = 127.0.0.1
./bitlbee-forkdaemon.patch:+DaemonInterface = 127.0.0.1
./bitlbee-3.2/bitlbee.conf:DaemonInterface = 127.0.0.1
./bitlbee-3.2/doc/bitlbee.xinetd: # bind = 127.0.0.1
./bitlbee-3.2/utils/bitlbeed.c: cli_txt = "127.0.0.1";
matej@wycliff: bitlbee (master %)$
That's all I needed to do to get it to work on my machine, which is only using the systemd socket approach. I'm sure you're correct that it should be changed in those other places too, to adjust the complete package. I'm happy to go through all the other ways of running it if that'd help.

Robert, what do you think? It seems to work here correctly.
I am fine with the patch, makes absolutely sense. Do you see chances that we
get that one also upstream on the long term?
