Um, should _res be exported to user programs?!  I think not.  That's a
private structure internal to the resolver.

bumping libc's major is a ... hairy idea.

...unless it's only exposed to programs that link w/ libresolv.  bumping
that one is okay, I think... but this issue must be examined very carefully.
