Personally, I would recommend implementing inet_ntop and inet_pton on
Windows.  The lack of those functions is, IMO, broken.  I looked at
the code in the mailing archive and it looks totally generic---like it
came right out of a UNIX libc.  So, if the author says the license is
BSD-incompatible, you can probably find equivalent code easily.

Eventually it might be good to take some of the networking utilities
out of tcp, udp, hostinfo etc. and combine it into a network utility
egg (or include file), if possible.  Some of the functionality in
these is duplicated.   This might include the Windows versions of
inet_ntop and inet_pton.  Even the high-level ip->string and
string->ip conversions seem a bit out of place in hostinfo, to me.

If you need to make a setup file, feel free to create an egg.  I don't
mind if you send it directly to Felix or commit it, just copy me.
