Hi !

I would like to introduce in classpath a concept which used to be in kaffe but was recently removed because of the merging with classes from classpath: DNS solver modularity. Previously it was possible to specify to kaffe (using -Ddns.resolve=class or something like this). That used to give an advantage: use a native method (using e.g. gethostbyname) or a Java method to resolve internet name. The java method is already implemented and we can get a lot of other useful insights to resolved name than we can get with gethostbyname. As the code to add if fairly simple (add an interface and a if branch at class initialization), I think it can be added painlessly.

Anyway if you are furiously against it (;-)) just tell me so it can be discussed...
