+1 ;-)

for example to get IP address of all interfaces we have to use the third (indexed as 2) member of "something" it is much more beatiful to get ip_address:

import socket
for ip in socket.gethostbyname_ex(socket.gethostname())[2]:
   
print(ip)

AFAIK the socket module returns plain tuples in Python3:

Why not use named tuples?
