Yup, Wietse has my changes (and has had them for several months).  As
far as I know he's not going to generate a new release of TCP Wrappers
any time soon, if ever (I've not seen him express any interest in doing
so in any forum that I subscribe to).  The code he has written to do
this kind of thing in Postfix is I think vastly superior to the old
code (though I've not yet analyzed it in isolation to see if its API
would be better or not).
