Note that getaddrinfo and getnameinfo are happy with IPv4, too - it's
just a more modern, somewhat protocol independent and threadsafe

Please do not use gethostbyaddr, except in a compatibility wrapper perhaps
(there are some, OpenBSD, KAME, ... they all have various missing bits).

It's fine with me if new features don't work on SunOS 4.1 :)
