I guess a consequence of this would be obsoleting the current API
(cannot keep _res as is when we move away from a bind4-based resolver),=

and if I've not misunderstood, this will mean that we will need to do a=

major version bump of libc, something we have been putting off for quit=
a while (and for good reason, I guess).
