So if you really want getnameinfo() to not go making gratuitous
syscalls on you - you want it to be _just_ a purely user-level "format
this data" call - you have to check the address family for IPv6, and
then check the scope ID, and if it's nonzero, format it with a zero
scope ID and attach the scope ID - as a number - yourself?
Ugh. What is one _supposed_ to use for debugging output? Or is there
an NI_NUMERICSCOPEID bit now?
