For what it's worth I think Nmap should be able to handle IPv4 and IPv6
in a single invocation.

Yes, that would be nice!

The only question is what to do in this case:
      nmap scanme.nmap.org 2001:500:88:200::10
Should scanme.nmap.org be resolved as IPv4 or IPv6? Some options are
      1) Always preferentially use IPv4.
      2) Always preferentially use IPv6.
      3) Use the getaddrinfo policy.

Good points.  Another option would be to scan both.  At least our
resolveall.nse could be agumented to do so.  Though I think that
functionality would be welcome as an official Nmap option at some
point.  Resolveall.nse is great, but it requires a pretty awkward
syntax (--script=resolveall
--script-args=newtargets,resolveall.hosts={<host1>, ...}) compared to
a plain Nmap option.
