Agree. Moreover, there is separate functions for inet4 and inet6.

Why the double spacing?

the default approach will be taken.

Are you sure glib doesn't provide some sort of inet_ntop wrapper that
you could crib, instead of rolling your own? And if you must roll your
own, do it as a separate patch from the rest of this work, possibly by
copying from glibc or other existing implementation (with proper credits
to the upstream source), rather than writing it from scratch.
