Argh. Addressing to the list, plus some changes....

Can do.

Yes, I see. However...
What if we simply want to do a gethostbyname, without all the rest of
the rigmarole required to fill in the sockaddr?

Or, suppose I want to hold onto the hostent produced by the
gethostbyname (which we do, in the proxy, when we are handling
directly connected hosts)? apr_sockaddr_info_get() either uses
getaddrinfo or gethostbyname, preferring getaddrinfo if it is

Or is this considered broken behavior, and should we learn to use the
apr_sockaddr_t, and like it? :)
