	I've placed properly-working getaddrinfo.c in
	I'm using it with no problem.
	There are tons of code dupliate, but I had no other choice.

	IIRC they overload "file" or "dns" to mean both name resolution.
	so "file dns" will mean "look at /etc/hosts for any hostname->address
	translation.  if failed, look at dns".
	This makes more sense to me.
