I found a similar recipe on one of Sun's blogger's sites last night,
and I'm still thinking, "Are they serious?" There's a cast, a method
call to get a map of strings, and, as some icing, a manifest constant
to designate which string means "target address".

I'm sure it works, but it's crying out for some convenience wrappers
to hide this "map of strings" underbelly. Is the problem that some
ports don't have meaningful addresses? What else precludes exposing


or similar?
