net-dev is the mailing list for the networking tests. There is a lot of 
recent activity there to allow the tests work in IPv6-only environments 
so fixing them to work in IPv4-only environments would be good too.

For this test then I assume that the @BeforeClass setup method can throw 
SkipException and thus eliminate the need for each test to check 
"shouldRun" (shouldRun could go away).
