At present, it's not a "real" api..

because it would look like this:

struct foo {
	struct sockaddr *sa1;
	struct sockaddr *sm1;
	struct sockaddr *sa2;
	struct sockaddr *sm2;
	struct in_addr a4_1;
	struct in6_addr a6_1;
	struct in_addr m4_1;
	struct in6_addr m6_1;
	struct in_addr a4_2;
	struct in6_addr a6_2;
	struct in_addr m4_2;
	struct in6_addr m6_2;
