without having looked very closely at it, i'd have to guess that the
size of res (a struct __res_state) has probably grown from each one to
the next, but that the api itself is probably the same (except perhaps
with more features as time goes by).

would it be horrific to suggest that the new apis (and structures) be
pulled in and versioned ala __RENAME()?
