sockaddr_ip_set(), sockaddr_port_set() are now gone...  now is prime time to 
see if there is any remaining need to allocate those sockaddrs, and separately 
to see if any well known APR users somehow rely on those sockaddrs being 
preallocated (i.e., they grab local socket address from socket before it would 
necessarily be set)
