I think this:
> maybe pass an address family to it? And only support inet6 for now.

which I read the same as:
> How about making the out parameter for the address an array instead and have an address family parameter (that may or may not be AF_UNSPEC for dual stack support later down the road)?

make the most sense IMO. 

int netutils_parse_hostname(const char *hostname, void *addr, int family, netif_t **netif)

Since there's only support for IPv6 netif's (LWIP doesn't expose `netif`s yet...), it should be enough to `assert(family == AF_INET6)` and keep the current implementation.
