For what it's worth APR's wrappers around getaddrinfo and getnameinfo
are an excellent source of oducmentation on the real-world
implementation bugs. We've added work-arounds for the various problems
on some versions of OS X, Tru64 and more.

In particular, reverse-lookups for IPv4-mapped-IPv6 addresses greatly
benefit from the hack to pretend that they were just IPv4 addresses all
along. There are still shipping OS's which don't get that right.
